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. When you first created your WordArt object, you entered text which was used by the WordArt program. If you later want to change that text, follow these steps:

  1. Select the WordArt object by clicking on it. Word displays the WordArt toolbar.
  2. Click on the Edit Text tool. WordArt displays the Edit WordArt Text dialog box. (See Figure 1.)
  3. Figure 1. The Edit WordArt dialog box.

  4. Change your text, as desired.
  5. Click on OK. Your WordArt object is updated.

Got a version of Word that uses the menu interface (Word 97, Word 2000, Word 2002, or Word 2003)? This site is for you! If you use a later version of Word, visit our WordTips site focusing on the ribbon interface.
