Word Art from Text

Logic: sSave time creating Word Art from existing text

Word Art is a powerful tool that draws text in all sorts of formats. Sometimes I like to change existing text straight into Word Art, which is easy if you know how.

text on slide

On this slide is an existing text box that is selected (the box is selected in this case). Then click the Word Art icon on the Drawing toolbar.

to word art dialogue box

Notice that when the Word Art dialogue box pops up, it is already populated with your existing text.

completed word art

Click OK and the Word Art appears ready for further formatting. You can now delete your old text box. Simple!
