Applying WordArt Styles
FIGURE 5.15
Change the case of the selected text by selecting a Change Case option from the menu.
Capitalize each word. Capitalizes the fi rst letter of each word.
Toggle case. Reverses the case of every letter. For example, it would change
“Smith” to “sMITH.”
When you use the Change Case attribute, the text retains no memory of its previous capi-
talization state. For example, if you used the Capitalize Each Word option on the word
PowerPoint , it would convert to Powerpoint . If you wanted to re-capitalize the middle
P, then you would have to manually retype it (or select only that P and choose Change
Case
Uppercase).
Most style guides dictate that you should capitalize all important words in titles, but not every word. For example, in the title “The
Best of the Best,” you do not capitalize the words “of” and “the.” Unfortunately, the Capitalize Each Word option in PowerPoint
cannot make that distinction for you, and so you must make those changes manually. However, Microsoft Word’s grammar checker
does identify and fix these capitalization errors. If you have a long, text-heavy presentation, you might find it worthwhile to export
the text to Word, perform a grammar check, and then re-import it.
Applying WordArt Styles
WordArt enables you to apply formatting features to text that would normally be used only
with graphics, such as special fi lls, outlines, glows, refl ections, and other special effects.
It’s pretty amazing stuff, as you’ll see in the following sections.
Up until PowerPoint 2007, WordArt had always been a rather compartmentalized specialty
feature. However, in PowerPoint 2007 and later, you can apply WordArt Styles to all text.
