Word Art in Word 2007 - Word 2013

WordArt is on the Insert Tab - the Insert Tab is shown above from Word 2013.

 

WordArt Dropdown in the Insert Tab

WordArt has been a component of Word for some time and continues under the Insert Tab. However, its appearance differs.

Word 2007

This gallery dropdown is the view of WordArt straight from Word 2003.

 

Word 2010

This changed dramatically in Word 2010-2013 with the introduction of a new graphics engine in Word. However, once WordArt is created, the use of Text Effects under the Drawing Tools Context Tab can manipulate it.

Note, that this is in a document in Word 2010-2013 native .docx format. If the document is in Word 97-2003 .doc format we see the same gallery as in Word 2007.

However, it is possible to have your cake and eat it too! The next screenshot is from a Word 2010 screen in a document formatted as a native Word 2010 .docx document. An Add-in containing a custom Building Blocks (AutoText) gallery is in use. That .dotx template also has a QAT modification to allow quick access to the gallery. This was done using tools from Greg Maxey's site (not required, just easier) and contains no macros. This Add-In can be downloaded for free from my downloads page.

If instead, you used Insert > WordArt in this document, you would get the Word 2010 dropdown.

In Word 2010-2013 the tabs to modify WordArt vary depending on whether you are using the new WordArt object or a legacy object.

The screen shot above shows the WordArt Tools (Format) tab being displayed in Word 2010. This is actually the same tab as is used for WordArt in Word 2007 and gives all of the options including a gallery of Classic Word Art. It shows up when a Classic WordArt object is selected. In Word 2013 the WordArt Tools tab only shows up if the document is in compatibility mode. If it is in native Word 2013 .docx format the WordArt object will be modified and will be manipulated by the Drawing Tools.

The screen shot below shows the same document except with a modern WordArt Object selected.

Note that the contextual tab is the Drawing Tools tab rather than the WordArt Tools tab.
