How can we help you?

Objects

Shapes Toolbar Options
Objects Icon

The objects icon displays shapes, lines, arrows, and containers, all in one easy-to-access location.

Quickly build your board by:

  • Select a single shape such as a callout to bring attention to a matter.

  • Easily build an intricate arrangement of objects by utilizing containers to organize your objects.

  • Use lines and arrows to create relationships between objects or to point out items.

  • Use object linking to create flow diagrams, mind or concept maps.
 
Note: Sticky Notes and Text are also considered objects but have their own icon on the left toolbar to access them more quickly.
