In this extension, you will add shapes and lines to your infographic.

Lines and shapes decorate and divide up a graphic.

Use them to lay out your page and direct your audience’s attention to specific information.

To begin, add lines to divide up your drawing and organize your information.

Change the line’s thickness, style, and endpoint symbols.

Endpoint symbols are the decorative elements at the beginning and end of the line.

Reposition the line to create sections or to draw attention to a specific fact.

To add more lines, copy your line, paste it, and move it to a new spot.

Great job!

Now add a shape to highlight a fact.

First, add and edit the shape.

Next, select a fill color or gradient for your shape... an outline color... ...and set the outline thickness.
