Loading Shapes

Use the LoadShape command to use shapes defined in compiled shape files (.shx files) with the InsertShape command.

To load shapes:

  1. Click Draw > Shape > Load (or type LoadShape).
  2. In the dialog box, navigate to the .shx file containing shapes, and click Open.

    You must load the shape file before a shape defined in that file can be used in a drawing.

Menu: Draw > Shape > Load
