Sub OffsetShapePositions() 
 Dim shpOne As Shape 
 Dim intLeft As Integer 
 Dim intTop As Integer 
 Dim intWidth As Integer 
 Dim intHeight As Integer 

 With ActiveDocument 
 .ViewTwoPageSpread = True 

 With .Pages 
 intWidth = 150 
 intHeight = 150 
 intLeft = (.Item(2).Width / 2) - intWidth 
 intTop = InchesToPoints(7) 

 Set shpOne = .Item(2).Shapes.AddShape _ 
 (Type:=msoShape5pointStar, Left:=intLeft, _ 
 Top:=intTop, Width:=intWidth, Height:=intHeight) 

 intLeft = (.Item(3).XOffsetWithinReaderSpread - _ 
 .Item(2).XOffsetWithinReaderSpread) + (.Item(2) _ 
 .Width - shpOne.Left - shpOne.Width) 
 intTop = (.Item(3).YOffsetWithinReaderSpread - _ 
 .Item(2).YOffsetWithinReaderSpread) + (.Item(2) _ 
 .Height - shpOne.Top - shpOne.Height) 

 .Item(2).Shapes.AddShape Type:=msoShape5pointStar, _
