Default Create a shape using words

It can be done manually, by drawing the shape and then typing the text (with
indents and breaks) to match the shape, then removing the drawing. Or you
can create negative shapes to constrain the text. But it is not worth the
effort when this task can easily be done in a drawing program such as
CorelDRAW.
