draw three concentric circles with text in each
(Office 2003-2007)

Today's bragging rights go to Hilary Jeanes of PurpleLine Consulting who asked how to 'draw' a diagram in a Word document showing 3 concentric circles with text in each.

Here's how:

  1. On the Insert tab, in the Illustrations group, click SmartArt. (Or if you are still using Word 2003 ... Choose the Insert, Diagram command, or click on the Insert Diagram or Organization Chart button on the Drawing toolbar.)
  2. In the Diagram Gallery dialog box, select the type of diagram you wish to create. (For instance, Word 2007's Relationship, Basic Venn or the second option in the second row in Word 2003.)
  3. Click on the OK button.
  4. Click in the centre of each circle of the diagram and type the appropriate text.
  5. Like Hilary, jump up and down with joy. (Or as she put it "Absolutely brilliant - and so easy (when you know how.....)"
