"Word Art" in Word 2010

"Word Art" in Word 2010

Postby Pilgrim » 15 Aug 2010, 20:08

What happened to the "Word Art" feature in MS Word 2010? All there seems to be now are different shadows, etc., rather than the shapes that were available in 2007, etc.???

And, when I inserted a Word Art at the top of a new document, I couldn't put anything below it? Perhaps it is just me not knowing how to use the new stuff.

Addendum: Oh yeh... I just opened the above .docx in Word 2007 and the "Word Art" formatting didn't display. The text was plain and black in color.

I don't have Word 2010, but according to one of the replies in WORDART SHAPES IN WORD 2010:
Create the WordArt, select it, then: Drawing Tools, Format tab, WordArt Styles, Text Effects, Transform, then choose the desired shape. You can reshape the WordArt by using the shaping and sizing handles.
Regards,
Hans

Do you not have this drop down on the Insert ribbon?

When I insert a WordArt shape and select it then I get the WordArt Tools - Format ribbon, with the shapes on
