This is driving me nuts, I can't find it.

I specifically mean these shapes:

Is there a shortcut key to it?

On the Home Tab in the Tools Group there is a drop down (top right of the group here) which contains the basic rectangle, ellipse and line tools.

The help includes the following keyboard shortcuts:

Select the Rectangle Tool: CTRL+8

Select the Ellipse Tool: CTRL+9

Select the Line Tool: CTRL+6

Select the Arc Tool: CTRL+7

Select the Freeform Tool: CTRL+5

Select the Pencil Tool: CTRL+4

But I cannot see freeform drawing or arc in the ribbon (perhaps time for some product feedback).

Yeah, but what about the standard flowchart shapes such as these… ? – Matt Jan 22 '10 at 19:46
I just created a drawing with the basic flowchart template, and the flowchart shapes are there. You can also click on more shapes to open any stencils. – Richard Jan 23 '10 at 23:05
