Microsoft Word 2010
WordArt allows you to add extra effects to text, such as:
Inserting A WordArt Object
- Place your cursor approximately where you want the WordArt.
- Display the Insert ribbon and click on
the button in the
Text area. The following window appears:
- Select a style from the gallery then click on OK. The Edit
WordArt window will appear:
- Enter the text for your WordArt. If you want the text to span over more
than one line (like examples shown at the top of this page), press Enter
to end each line.
- If desired, you can change the font and font size and add bolding and/or
italics to the effect.
- Choose OK when done.
When you insert WordArt it is treated as an image/graphic, i.e.
spell check will not check your text, WordArt can be sized and controlled as
you would for an image file.
Use the WordArt Formatting ribbon, as described below. You can also select the text and use formatting options available on the Home ribbon.
