Fortunately, SmartArt lets you maintain the changes happening in the world around with just a click or two! This is normally achieved by adding extra shapes to your existing SmartArt graphics.

In the past, I have reviewed previous versions of this program -- and this new review will focus on improvements and new features since the core program is relatively the same.
