Using advanced object formatting effects
Figure 10-41 Start with a basic shape, and give it depth.
With the controls in the 3-D Rotation category in the Format Shape task pane, you can
control the attitude of the selected shape in all three dimensions. We’ll describe the
controls in the both 3-D categories in the Format Shape task pane in detail.
Top Bevel and Bottom Bevel (in the 3-D Format category) Controls the amount
of extrusion applied to the selected shape, giving it the appearance of having a
beveled edge. You can create extrusions on both sides; the Top Bevel drop-down list
controls the front of the shape, and the Bottom Bevel drop-down list controls the back,
as shown in Figure 10-42. (To see the results of the Bottom Bevel settings, you must
rotate the shape using controls in the 3-D Rotation category.) The Width settings
control the width of the beveled edge, and the Height settings control the distance
the bevel is extruded from the surface of the shape.
