Where is the Old Style Word Art in Word 2010?

01/31/2012 08:49 by justsharon

Could anyone tell me whether it is possible to insert Word Art similar to that in versions of MS Word from 2003 and before? The Word Art in MS Word 2010 only seems to appear in straight lines, whereas I would sometimes prefer to have the writing in the style of a curved banner? Have MS just removed this option, oram I looking in the wrong place? It just doesn't seem to be an option? Thanks. P.S, I know the text can be offset at an angle, but clicking on the small green circle, but I want the writing to curve?

  • You should be able to insert the same WordArt styles in the 2010 version. Click the Insert tab, and then the WordArt drop down arrow to access WordArt styles.

  • As far as I can see, the Word Art facility is identical.  Curved banners are certainly still possible.

  • Word 2010's WordArt is a bit more powerful than you suspect, I believe. Insert a WordArt object, then, in Drawing Tools - Format, look at Text Effects - Transform. Does that give you what you want?
    If not, you can still get the old style. Save the file in Word 2003 format, and now when you choose Insert - WordArt, you'll see the legacy choices.

  • Use Word 2003 because you can't do it on 2010.

    Open Word 2010 & click on Insert, then click on Work Art.  You will have a blank docuement with the 2010 Word Art displayed on upper right.  Click on "File" then "Save As", then go down to "Save As Type:" Word Docuement (*.docx) at end of display is a down arrow & click on it.  Select the option below: "Word 97 - 2003" and the click on "Save".  Your blank docuement will now display the Word Art 2003.

  • I know right!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! There were so many beautiful WordArt styles in word 2002/xp , and in word 2010, none of them are there! All I see for WordArt 2010 styles are some stupid cheap styles like glowing around the edges of the letter, bolded around the edges of the letter, colured in letters, or letters with a shadow. i guess the would look okay if you customised them a little, but seriously! This is trash compared to the word 2002/xp styles. Here's a link to see the word 2002/xp styles:

    Here's a link to see the word 2010 xp styles

    Copy and paste these in the search bar so you can see for yourself if i'm right or wrong !!!!!!!!!

  • Hi justsharon,

    If you save as your doc into office 2003 or older, your compatibility on your office 2010 will be activated, and you have all feature on those older office on your office 2010. 

    This is an easy step,

    1. Open your MS Office 2010

    2. "Save as" your blank document to .doc file (choose Word 97 - 2003 Document)

    3. Your compatibility will be activated soon, after your Office detect you are use .doc file.

    4. Now you can access all "Old features" of Microsoft Office.

    I hope it can help you...

  • It's still there, but you have to go around the world to do it. Insert word and go to text effects (that the A that glows) and there's a transition option there. Yeah!!!!!!
