    Hi

    I hope this question fits this section of your forum, if not i apologise.

    I am using word 2008 on my mac, I insert an shape from the Object Palette / toolbox and now I would like to add some text within this shape, how do I do this?

    The simple answer - get a mouse - right click - add text... however I do not have a mouse here.

    I am using new MACBook where the pad = button and my OS is 10.5.8

    It would be awesome if you can help!

    You can still right-click.

    Put two fingers on the pad, and click.

    Or, press the 'Control' button, and click the mousepad.

    A mousepad is still a mouse.

    Either click on the lower right hand side of your trackpad (multi-click feature) or ctrl-click.

    pushing "control" and the trackpad is a right click.

    Even simpler, use System Preferences->Trackpad and enable "Tap trackpad using two fingers for secondary click"
