Get started with a template

All documents begin with a template—a model you can use as a starting point. You can create word-processing documents, like reports and letters, and page layout documents, like posters and newsletters. Simply replace the template text and images with your own content.

Intro to word-processing and page layout documents

The Insert menu with buttons across the top to add tables, charts, shapes, and media. Shapes is selected and its menu shows a row of categories with a Search button on the left. The category Activities is selected and shapes appear below.

Add tables, photos, drawings, and more

Add objects like tables, charts, shapes, and media (images, drawings, audio, and video) to your document. You can layer objects, resize them, and place them anywhere on the page.

Customize every detail

Change the look of your text, add a drop shadow to an image, fill shapes with color, and more—you can modify everything in your document. You can even wrap text around images, link text boxes so the text flows from one box to the next, or use mail merge to automatically personalize multiple documents.
