Draw a Perfect Straight Line, Square or Circle with This Cool Tip

When using Microsoft Word, Excel, Outlook or PowerPoint, you can add shapes, such as boxes, circles, and arrows, to your documents, email messages, slide shows, and spreadsheets. 

But how do you get a perfect circle rather than an oval?  Or a square rather than a rectangle?  Or a straight line rather than a jagged one?

The secret Cool Tip is to press and hold the SHIFT key when dragging the mouse to create the shape.

Press Shift Key to draw perfect line square circle

Here's how to do it:

  • On the Insert tab, click Shapes
  • Click the shape icon you want to draw, click anywhere in the workspace and drag to place the shape.
  • To create a perfect line, square or circle (or constrain the dimensions of other shapes), press and hold Shift key while you drag to create the shape.
