WordArt is a Word feature that allows you to insert specially formatted text into a docu-
ment. WordArt provides great flexibility in designing text with special effects that express
the image or mood you want to convey in your printed documents. With WordArt, you
can apply color and shading, as well as alter the shape and size of the text.
You begin creating WordArt text by clicking a button on the Drawing toolbar. When
you first display the Drawing toolbar, Word switches to Print Layout view. As a rule, Print
Layout view is the most appropriate view to use when you are desktop publishing
because it shows you exactly how the text and graphics fit on the page. The vertical ruler
in Print Layout view helps you position graphical elements more precisely.

Click the OK button.
Click the WordArt to select it, and then drag any handle to resize and reshape it. To
avoid altering the WordArt’s proportions, press and hold down the Shift key while you
drag a handle.
