Word... box shapes inside a box.

  Newuser2533 19:32 27 Mar 2006

I'm trying to present a flow chart of a CPU and have got to the stage of drawing the boxshape from the autoshape menu.
How do I get further boxes inside this shape please, so I can show the ALU and Control unit within it.
Thank you in advance.

If you find the flowchart shape from the autoshape menu and place it on the page you can then place a different shape on top of it. You may need to right click on the shapes and select order to ensure the correct on is one top and that any text shows through.

You can group the different shapes by using the "Select Object" arrow on the Drawing toolbar to draw a box around them and then right clicking and selecting the Group option. This will mean that if you move the shapes they will all move together as one item.

You could try inserting a Textbox.
