Drawings in Publisher

Help please,
For a course I need to draw simple pictures using the shapes in Publisher, problem is I cannot insert these into a Publisher blank document. On clicking on Insert I receive a box called Convert File. This says "convert file from" and there follows a list of file types. The top format highlighted is Enhanced Metafile.
Any one tell me what this all means please? All I want to do is insert a .pub file into a Publisher document.
Thanks for looking

Highlight the shape you wish to draw. Move the mouse pointer to the blank page then click where you want the shape and draw the mouse out to give the shape you want. Does that make sense??? It is getting late and past my bed time. :-))

Sorry I meant to add DONT use Insert command for this.

Thanks Bagsey, but what about the case of inserting a drawing, which is already created and filed, into a new publisher document?

Have you tried copying the drawing that is already created and then pasting it into the new publisher document?

Yes that works OK Thank you.
