Applying WordArt Styles
The WordArt Styles group on the Drawing Tools Format tab includes four tools that allow
you to alter the color, shape, and overall look of WordArt. If you don’t like the style you
selected when you originally created your WordArt, you can select a new style using
the Quick Styles button. To change the fi ll color, use the Text Fill button, or, to change
the outline color, use the Text Outline button. Finally, the Text Effects button gives you
access to a variety of special effects, including shadows, beveling, and 3-D rotation, and
transforming the shape of the WordArt. If your WordArt already includes some of these
features, you can use the Text Effects button to fi ne tune the effects, perhaps by making a
shadow or bevel more noticeable, or by removing an effect entirely.
Joel wants you to change the fi ll color for the WordArt text to red, and then transform
the shape of the text.
To change the color and shape of WordArt:
1. Verify that the WordArt text box is still selected, click the Drawing Tools Format
tab, and then, in the WordArt Styles group, click the Text Fill button arrow
A color palette opens.
2. In the bottom row of the Theme Colors section, position the mouse pointer over
the red color in the fifth column from the right, to display the ScreenTip “Red,
Accent 2, Darker 50%.”
3. Click the Red, Accent 2, Darker 50% color. The headline is now red.
4. Click the Text Effects button in the WordArt Styles group, and then point to
Transform . A gallery of transform effects appears, as shown in Figure 4-13. As
with any palette in Word, you can move the mouse pointer over the options in the
palette to preview the changing effects in the document before clicking to select
one. In this case, Joel asks you to use the Wave 1 effect.
