You can add, show, hide, and delete sections in the ShapeSheet.

Note Note

If you want to add your own custom section to the ShapeSheet, use the User-defined Cells or Scratch sections to define your ShapeSheet logic.

To add a section

  1. Click in the ShapeSheet window to make it active.

  2. Do one of the following:

    • Under ShapeSheet Tools on the Design tab, in the Sections group, click Insert.

    • Or right-click in the ShapeSheet window, and then click Insert Section on the shortcut menu.

  3. Select the check box for the section you want to add, and then click OK.

    Note Note

    If you don't see the new section in the ShapeSheet window, make sure the section is set to appear. In the View group on the ShapeSheet Tools tab, click Sections, and then select the check boxes for the sections you want to appear.

To show or hide sections

  • Select any cell in the section you want to delete, and then in the Sections group on the ShapeSheet Tools tab, click Delete.

  • You can also right-click a cell, and then click Delete Section on the shortcut menu.

    Note Note

    Certain sections cannot be deleted. For example, you cannot delete the Shape Transform section because it specifies a shape's position. If you cannot delete a section, Delete Section is unavailable.

To collapse or expand a section

  1. Click in the ShapeSheet window to make it active.

  2. Point to the section title.

    If the pointer changes to a minus sign IC_SSMinus_ZA07645855, you can collapse the section.

    If the pointer changes to a plus sign IC_SSPlus_ZA07645856, you can expand the section.

  3. Click the section title.

    The display changes to either hide or show the section's cells.

To delete a section

  1. Click in the ShapeSheet window to make it active.

  2. Under ShapeSheet Tools on the Design tab, in the View section, click Sections. Or right-click in the ShapeSheet window, and then click View Sections.

  3. Select the sections you want to show, or clear the sections you want to hide.

  4. Click OK.
