Default How to shade only one circle out of 2 circles?

In MS Word 2010, How to shade only one circle out of 2 overlapping circles?





"A" should be visible in that shaded region.

The only way I know how to do this is with paint. Draw a circle - copy it with transparent selection - paste - fill

Easily-enough done in Word, too. Simply insert an oval object, then make two copies it. Click on and fill the original with the desired colour, then drag the first copy to the desired position. Give the second copy no fill, then position it exactly it over the original. See attached.

I'd have thought the instructions I gave were perfectly clear. I even provided an example. Since all you've posted is an image, I can't tell what you've done, but I can tell that you didn't follow the instructions...

Click on what exactly? Click on first circle or second circle?

Sorry, but I'm not going to create an account somewhere else just so I can watch a video of you not following some quite simple instructions.
