In a previous tip, I showed you how to make perfectly proportionate shapes, such as circles and squares, in Word. If you need multiple copies of the same shape, you can 1) manually create multiple copies, 2) select the object, then do a copy and paste, or 3) use the quick and easy tip below.

To quickly make a copy of a shape:

  1. Click the shape to select.
  2. Press and hold down the CTRL key.
  3. Drag the object to create a copy in a new location.
