Using Different Shapes in WordArt

WordArt is a program that allows you to treat text as a graphic. You can use the program to add special effects and flourishes to text and then insert the text in your document. One of the special effects areas is implemented through different shapes you can apply to your text. You apply shapes in the following manner:

  1. Select the WordArt object by clicking on it. Word displays the WordArt toolbar.
  2. Click on the WordArt Shape tool. A graphic menu of forty different shapes appears.
  3. Select the shape you want to use. WordArt updates your WordArt object.

You should note that the WordArt shapes are different than what you selected in the WordArt Gallery. Each affects the other, and you may need to do some experimentation to get exactly the effect you desire.
