INSERT TEXT BOXES
into your worksheet
By using a text graphic, you can create logos, add text
to pictures, or add text to your worksheet. You can
create text with shadows, reflections, glows, bevels,
3-D rotations, and transforms. For each option, you
can choose from several sub-options, and you can
apply multiple effects to the same piece of text.
By using the various options, you can create the
style you want or select a predefined style. As you
roll your cursor over the predefined styles, Excel
provides a quick preview of how the styles appear
when applied to your text.
Use the Text Fill button to change the color of your
text and the Text Outline button to change the color
that outlines your text.
As with all graphics, you can resize, rotate, and
reposition text boxes. You can also change the font
size, alignment, and format. Use the same methods
you use to change text added to a shape. To learn
more, see Task #72.
