How to Hang a Shape Below Another Shape in a PowerPoint 2007 Organization Chart

Besides the standard relationship between shapes above and below one another in a chart, PowerPoint lets you create hanging relationships. In PowerPoint you can create a hanging relationship between shapes before or after you create the subordinate shapes. In a hanging relationship, the line hangs from a shape, and subordinate shapes are connected to the line.

Select the shape to which other shapes will hang or are hanging and follow these steps to create a hanging relationship:

1

Select the (SmartArt Tools) Design tab.

The Design view opens up.

2

Click the Layout button.

The Layout screen comes to life.

3

Select an option on the drop-down list — Both, Left Hanging, or Right Hanging.

The Standard option on the drop-down list is for creating a standard relationship, not a hanging relationship.
