Aligning Text in WordArt

by Allen Wyatt
(last updated July 25, 2015)

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. WordArt provides several different ways to align text in your artwork. In fact, there are more alignment options than in Word. You select an alignment method by clicking on the WordArt Alignment tool on the WordArt toolbar. You can pick from any of the following:

  • Left Align
  • Center
  • Right Align
  • Word Justify
  • Letter Justify
  • Stretch Justify
