    I'm new to Word 2007 (and not yet real happy with it). The documents I create for work contain lots of shapes, mostly arrows and text boxes. I click Insert>Shapes, select arrow, and insert it where I want it. Is there some way to make Word remain in the "insert" mode so I can insert a bunch of shapes without having to click three times for each one?

    Morning md2lgyk,
    When you insert a shape, does the ribbon switch to the Format tab, where you can change the color and style of the shape? If so, on the far left of that tab you should see a box with all of the shapes in it. You can click and insert them at will from there, without going back to the Insert tab. Hope that helps.

    Yes, it does. I just never noticed that box on the left. Not exactly what I was looking for, but a lot faster nonetheless. Thanks!
