    Hello again

    I was just wondering if anyone knows if it is possible to arch your text using MS word. I dont really know how to explain it better but sorta have it form a "rainbow" arch of text, above your clipart and "smile" type of text under the clipart. I know I'm not explaining it very well but if any one can help I would really, really appreciate it.
    thanks in advance!

      You have to go to "insert" and then "word art"

      you type in your text there and then you will have a tool bar with the different types of ways you can modify it. The arch is one of the "shapes"

      let me know if that doesn't make sense

        Yes that makes perfect sense. I went to MS word and clicked on "wordart", my next issue is that I can get the top text to arch properly, but not the bottom. its weird, It looks too curved and hard to read. What could I be doing wrong?

          Disregard, I think I figured it out. The word was just too short. So when it curved it looked silly. I straightened it out and it looks alright. Thanks for your help!

            One note on the word art circles - if you want to change the color of the text, you may need to change the color of the line line and the fill rather than the text itself. At least that's the case in PowerPoint.
