Adding Multimedia and WordArt to Your Presentation
If you want to change the font or font size,
double-click the WordArt object to select it
and choose Home>Font to make any desired
Even if you do not have an artistic bone in your
body, you can still draw with the Microsoft Office
drawing features. You can draw arrows, boxes,
stars, circles, callouts, and dozens of other objects.
The Shapes feature is available in Word, Excel,
PowerPoint, and Publisher.
Follow these steps to draw a shape:
Select the slide on which you want to draw.
2. Choose Insert>Illustrations>Shapes. A gallery
of shapes appears as seen in Figure 15-16.
Selecting a predefined shape.
3. Choose the shape you want. The gallery
closes and your mouse pointer turns into a small
black plus sign.
4. Click and drag in the slide until the shape
that appears is about the size you want (see
Figure 15-17). When you release the mouse
button, the shape object becomes selected.
To constrain the shape so it is equally sized,
such as a perfect circle or a completely straight
line, hold down the Shift key when drawing.
