Inserting text in AutoShapes (97/98/2000)

By default, some AutoShapes, such as the Basic Shapes and Block Arrows collections, don't automatically allow you to insert text in them. To insert text in an AutoShape that doesn't allow this by default, right-click ([control]-click on the Mac) on the AutoShape and then choose Add Text from the resulting shortcut menu. Word converts the AutoShape and places the insertion point inside it, where you can begin typing.
