Create Nice Visual Word Documents Faster than Ever
Introduction to Documents and Diagrams
Want to add diagrams to your word document? It is said that a picture is worth a thousand words. Inserting some visuals into your document makes it persuasive and attractive. Start with predefined, coordinated designs and then customize to suit your needs.
Edrawmakesitasnaptocreateadiagramthatsupportsyourtext,whetherit's a mind map, an organization chart, a flowchart, a set of tasks, or something else. Over 200 kinds of diagrams can be generated effortlessly via Edraw. You can use themes to refine the look and layout.
Start from Templates to Make Unique Diagrams for Word
If you are time-crunched, work with a template. The easiest way to create more elaborate documents for Word is to use a template. Edraw has thousands of them, from pie chart and bar chart to business cards and fax covers. To get started, go to File > New in the left navigation bar, and then choose a diagram type, which brings up a selection of popular templates topped by the search box. Double click a desired one from the example panel to edit it.
These templates come with images and dummy text, both of which are easily replaceable with your own (you can either double click on a shape and start typing, or paste in text or images you've previously copied). But even if you want to change design elements (such as fonts, for example), you might start with a template just to pick up preset shapes and other basic layout parameters that would be annoying to create from scratch in Word. The whole process may only take 5-10 minutes.
After the diagram is completed, export it into Word format.
- On File menu, point to Export & Send, and click Office option.
- Click the Word button.
- The MS Word document window will open within Edraw.
The diagram is exported to a MS Word document immediately, in editable format.
Watch the demo to see how easy it is to give a plain document a professional-looking makeover, and then give it a final polish with titles, borders or beautiful clipart.
