We complete our org chart in this lesson by inserting our images into their containers. This will put our alignment and distribution skills to the test.

Lesson Notes

Entering text in a shape

- Text won't appear if the background colour and text colour is the same
- To solve this problem, simply select the shape and then change font colour
- Align text in a box by clicking the Align Text dropdown in the Home tab of the ribbon

Elbow connectors

- Elbow connectors can be accessed in the quick access toolbar
- Hover the cursor over the midpoint of an object until a red circle appears
- This means the elbow connector is now attached to the image
- Drag the elbow connector until the red circle appears on the second object
