Get visual with SmartArt graphics

Applying WordArt style to text in graphic

A similar degree of customizing is possible for the text in the SmartArt graphic as for shapes. As the picture shows, right next to the Shape Styles is another collection of galleries with styles and effects for text, called WordArt Styles.

To apply WordArt formatting to your text:

Callout 1 Select the shapes that contain the text you want to format.
Callout 2 On the Format tab, click the arrow next to Quick Styles. (This is in the WordArt Styles group.)
Callout 3 Pick a WordArt style. It will apply to all the text in the selected shapes.

In this group you've also got galleries for color fill, outline style, and visual effects that include shadow, reflection, and glow.

Here's a tip     You can use the Format tab for other work with shapes. For example, replace one shape with another; resize shapes; and rearrange shapes by aligning them, moving them forward or back in order on the slide, or rotating them.
