Video: Using WordArt

Because Publisher 2010 is part of the Office 2010 Suite of Applications, you have access to some of the functionality you'll find in those other programs, like Microsoft Word, for example. One of them is WordArt, which is the ability to take text and turn it into a graphic. And that's what we're going to do right now, continuing with our brochure. Let's go to page 1. We'll scroll over to the left-hand panel, and up to the top where we see Two Trees Olive Oil. This is plain old text that appears in a text box, but we can change that to WordArt if we want.

Using WordArt

Because Publisher 2010 is part of the Office 2010 Suite of Applications, you have access to some of the functionality you'll find in those other programs, like Microsoft Word, for example. One of them is WordArt, which is the ability to take text and turn it into a graphic. And that's what we're going to do right now, continuing with our brochure. Let's go to page 1. We'll scroll over to the left-hand panel, and up to the top where we see Two Trees Olive Oil. This is plain old text that appears in a text box, but we can change that to WordArt if we want.

So, I'll just click inside there, and then we'll just triple-click to select everything and press Delete. The other option is just to click on the border and press Delete to remove the entire text box. Now it's time to insert the WordArt. The key word is insert. We go to the Insert tab, and here is where you're going to find the WordArt in the Text group. Notice WordArt has a dropdown, so we click this and you get to choose your WordArt style before you even start typing. So if you see something that you' like, you can select it from here. You can even go down to some styles. And once you've made your selection, the Edit WordArt Text dialog box appears, where you can actually type in that text.

So let's type in "Two Trees Olive Oil." Now, don't worry too much about the font and the size, because we can make adjustments later if we need to. I might choose a different looking font as we scroll down the list, we'll go to something with a little bit more pizzazz, like Calligraphy. We'll leave the size as is. It really doesn't apply, because it's going to be a graphic that's created that we can adjust, so let's click OK, and that's what it looks like.

Of course, we might want to change the color so it goes better with this particular publication, and we'll want to definitely change the size and location. But look what happens. It is selected, and because it's WordArt, we see a Format tab for WordArt tools appearing at the end of our Ribbon. So we have got some options for editing that text if we needed to make a change. Spacing. You can see Alignment here as well. There are the styles and if you click the dropdown, you can change the styles, so we can go back to this; maybe this one is better. It's a better color, fill is green with a white outline.

We can change the fill of our shape, the shape outline, and we can even change the shape by clicking this dropdown. Right now, it's going straight across, so if you want to add some dimension to it, there are some curves, some waves. Let's go to this one, Wave 1, and now we'll just go to handle. It's just like any other object; just click and drag it in, move it by going to the middle, and just clicking and dragging into the appropriate location, maybe squeeze it up a little bit.

You've got all of those options, even a rotate handle, if you wanted to rotate it. I'm just going to move that up a little bit further, deselect by clicking outside, and that's a totally different effect than what we saw with plain old text in a text box. So, keep in mind, because Publisher is part of the Office Suite, you have access to some of the tools available in those other programs, like Microsoft Word, including WordArt.
