Adding Shapes to Forms

Using shapes is not common and not suitable for all outputs. Usually using a table is a better option since tables are easier than shapes to maintain, align and paginate.

The most common use of shapes is when there is a need for for adding information in a specific location or if you want to add another layer of information to what is already in the document.

To add a shape select Insert>Shapes and select one of the following shapes: Rectangle, circle, rectangle with rounded corners or line. Drag the cursor on the editing area to create the shape. Pressing the Shift key while dragging creates a shape with length and width that are equal.
