To Change the Weight of the WordArt Outline
The letters in the WordArt style applied have a double outline around the edges. To emphasize this characteristic,
you can increase the width of the lines. As with font size, lines also are measured in point size, and PowerPoint gives
you the option to change the line weight , or thickness, starting with ¼ point (pt) and increasing in one-fourth–point
increments. Other outline options include modifying the color and the line style, such as changing to dots or dashes or
a combination of dots and dashes. The following steps change the WordArt outline weight to 6 pt.
