By default, double-clicking a shape opens the shape's text block so that you can edit its text. However, you can change this double-click behavior. For example, you can have the shape display a different page in the same drawing, run a macro, or open the shape's ShapeSheet spreadsheet.
Right-click the shape whose double-click behavior you want to change, point to Format, and then click Behavior.
Click the Double-Click tab, and then click one of the following double-click actions for the shape:
Perform default action Double-clicking the shape activates the default action for the shape, such as opening the text block so you can edit the text.
Perform no action Double-clicking the shape results in no action.
Edit shape's text Double-clicking the shape opens the shape's text block.
Open group in new window Double-clicking a group opens it in a new group window. This action is available only when a group is selected.
Open shape's ShapeSheet Double-clicking a shape opens its ShapeSheet spreadsheet.
Custom Double-clicking a shape performs custom behavior that has been entered in the ShapeSheet spreadsheet, in the Events section, in the EventDblClick cell.
Display help Double-clicking the shape displays a Help topic for the shape. This topic can differ from the one that appears when you right-click the shape, and then choose Help. You must use the following syntax:
FILENAME!keyword or FILENAME!#Number
Filename is the Windows help file (either an .hlp or a .chm file).
Keyword is the index term associated with the help topic.
Number is a numeric ID that is referenced in the MAP section of the help project file.
OLE verb Double-clicking an OLE object activates OLE options, such as opening the source program so that you can edit the object.
Run macro Double-clicking the shape runs the macro you select from the list.
Go to page Double-clicking the shape displays a specific drawing page.
Open in new window Double-clicking the shape displays the drawing page in a new window.
Tip: To link a shape to another drawing, file, or Web page, you can add a hyperlink. You could instead create a macro that opens another drawing, file, or Web page, and then run the macro when you double-click a shape, but adding a hyperlink is much easier and faster.
