If you draw an AutoShape and start typing in it, the text does not wrap automatically.

To automatically wrap the text as you type within an AutoShape object, follow these steps:

  1. Select the object.

  2. On the Format menu, click AutoShape, and then click the Text Box tab.

  3. Click to select the "Word Wrap Text in AutoShape" check box.

  4. Click OK.
