predefined shadow effects, or you can call up a dialog box that lets you
customize the shadow.

The best way to discover how to use these effects is to experiment with them
to see how they work.
Flipping and Rotating Objects
To flip an object means to create a mirror image of it. To rotate an object
means to turn it about its center. PowerPoint lets you flip objects
horizontally or vertically, rotate objects in 90-degree increments, or freely rotate an
object to any angle.
Rotation works for text boxes and Shape text. Therefore, you can use rotation
to create vertical text or text skewed to any angle you want. However,
flipping an object doesn’t affect the object’s text.
