Fun with Fonts and Art That’s Smart
You don’t have to be an artist or a graphic designer to add professional-looking
graphic effects to your documents. WordArt bends and twists words in all kinds
of ways—it’s great for an attention-getting flyer (and just plain fun to play with).
SmartArt adds punch to your words and ideas by representing them visually,
graphically showing relationships between ideas, such as a hierarchy chart, or steps in a
process—a flowchart, for example. Both are easy to use—and you’ll look good,
because your document looks so good.
Creating WordArt
You can find WordArt in the Text section of the Insert tab. Here’s how to use it:
1. PositionthecursorwhereyouwantyourWordArt.SelectInsert WordArt
(Alt,N,W).
The WordArt gallery opens, showing examples of WordArt styles.
2. Choosethestyleyouwant.
Word inserts a text box in your document (which has some placeholder text in
the style you chose) and opens the Drawing Tools | Format contextual tab, as
shown in Figure 3-21.
3. Clickinsidethetextboxandstarttyping.Asyoutype,thetextboxautomati-
callyexpandstoaccommodateyourtext.
Word overwrites the placeholder text with your new text.
When you’re finished, click outside the text box to go back to working with
normal text.
