Adding Multimedia and WordArt to Your Presentation
Editing Your Presentation
2. Select a style. A WordArt text placeholder box
appears on the slide and a Drawing Tools
Format tab appears.
5. Use the tools in the WordArt Styles group to
modify the WordArt text characteristics. All
options include Live Preview, so as you hover
your mouse pointer over any option, you see
its effect on your WordArt object:
3. Type the text you want, and when you are
finished click outside of the WordArt text box
to see your WordArt object (see Figure 15-
14). Limiting WordArt to a single line of text
is a good idea; the elaborate formatting can
make lengthier text difficult to read.
Styles changes the text style from the
one you selected in Step 2.
Text Fill changes the text color,
gradient, or pattern.
Text Outline modifies the outer edges
of the text.
Text Effects applies special effects such as
shadow, reflection, rotation, bevel, and
transformation (see the next section).
To edit the text, simply double-click anywhere
in the WordArt text and make a correction.
6. Optionally apply a background to the
WordArt object, by choosing Drawing Tools
Format>Shape Styles and then click the More
button. A gallery of themed styles appears as
you see in Figure 15-15. Select a background
option or click the Other Theme Fills arrow
to select from several gradient options.
4. Click the Drawing Tools Format tab. If you do
not see the Drawing Tools Format tab, click
once on the WordArt box.
Partial Text Change
To change only a portion of the WordArt,
highlight the portion you want to change
before you make the change.
Select a style for the object.
