Adding to a flowchart to a Microsoft Word document

If you want to create a flowchart in Microsoft Word 2007 or Microsoft Word 2010, you want to be able to use connectors to join shapes together. If you move a shape, you want the connecting line to move with it.

To create a flowchart:

  1. Click Insert – Shapes, then from the bottom of the dropdown, click New Drawing Canvas.
  2. Create your shapes in the normal way (If you want several shapes of the same size, click Ctrl + D to duplicate the shapes).

  3. Select a shape that you want to connect to another shape.
  4. On the Drawing Tools Format tab, select an arrow or one of the other connectors. Drag from the red dot on one shape to the red dot on another shape.
  5. Now if you move a shape, the connector will move with it.
