Quick – you selected the AutoShape and want to add or edit a gradient – how many clicks away are you from the Gradient dialog box?

Did you answer 3, 2 or 1?

3 Clicks

You select the AutoShape and choose Format | AutoShape. Or you might right-click the AutoShape and choose Format AutoShape… Then click the downward pointing arrow next to Color and choose Fill Effects in the resultant dropdown box. This gets you to the Gradient tab of the Fill Effects dialog box.

2 Clicks

You double-click the AutoShape to get to the Format AutoShape dialog box. Then click the downward pointing arrow next to Color and choose Fill Effects in the resultant dropdown box. This gets you to the Gradient tab of the Fill Effects dialog box.



1 Click

You select the AutoShape and click on the downward pointing arrow next to the Fill icon on the Drawing toolbar (the icon that looks like a paint can). In the resultant flyout menu, choose Fill Effects – this gets you straight to the Gradient tab of the Fill Effects dialog box.
