3
Overview Bringing your document to life
  • Your document is complete, but somethings
    missing, and you dont have a lot of time to
    hand-craft graphical pizzazz.

Word has a large, built-in store of attractive
backgrounds, borders, shading, and graphical text
effects that you can apply quickly to the page or
to text for instant effect. This course shows you
how.
4
Course goals
  • Add a watermark or background.
  • Create borders and shading effects on text,
    tables, and entire pages.
  • Animate text and create other graphical text
    effects.

5
Lesson 1
  • Adding a watermark or background picture

6
Adding a watermark or background picture
  • Watermarks and backgrounds are somewhat
    similarthey can both be used to add visual
    interest in the document background without
    overpowering text.
  • However, their form and function veer off from
    there.
  1. Watermark
  2. Background

7
Adding a watermark or background picture
  • The picture illustrates the most significant
    difference between the two types of images
  • Watermarks are intended to appear in printed
    documents, behind the text.
  • Backgrounds are used in Web pages.
  1. Watermark
  2. Background

8
Add a watermark to a printed document
  • You can add two types of watermark to a document
    a picture or text.
  • You insert both from the Printed Watermark dialog
    box (on the Format menu, Background submenu).

The watermark is visible behind text but doesnt
obscure it.
9
Add a watermark to a printed document
  • For pictures, you can choose from any image on
    your hard disk or from clip art in the Microsoft
    Clip Organizer.

For text, you can select the text you want from
the drop-down list or type your own text, and
select font, size, and color the same way you do
for regular document text.
The watermark is visible behind text but doesnt
obscure it.
10
Add a watermark to a printed document
  • Once its inserted, you can see your watermark in
    print layout view (click Print Layout on the View
    menu), or in the printed document.

The watermark is visible behind text but doesnt
obscure it.
11
Add a background to a Web page
  • Web page backgrounds can take a number of forms
  • Solid color
  • Texture, such as different color marble or
    woodgrain effects
  • A pattern, such as stripes or checkerboards
  • A picture from your hard disk

Add a background to a Web page
  • To choose and add a background, use the Fill
    Effects dialog box (also on the Format menu,
    Background submenu).

Suggestions for practice
  1. Add a watermark.
  2. Add a background.

Online practice (requires Word 2003)
14
Test 1, question 1
  • What is the main purpose of a watermark? (Pick
    one answer.)
  1. Authenticate your document as the original.
  2. Add a dappled, water-like finish to your printed
    document.
  3. Communicate useful information or add visual
    interest without overpowering the main text of
    the document.

15
Test 1, question 1 Answer
  • Communicate useful information or add visual
    interest without overpowering the main text of
    the document.

You can add text watermarks such as
Confidential, Draft, or any designator you
choose. You can also add graphical watermarks.
Both sit behind your text so that they dont
obscure it.
16
Test 1, question 2
  • What is the main difference between backgrounds
    and watermarks? (Pick one answer.)
  1. Backgrounds are always solid colors, and
    watermarks are always transparent images.
  2. Backgrounds are intended for documents that will
    be viewed on the Web, and watermarks for printed
    documents or documents that will be displayed in
    print layout view.
  3. There is no difference. The two serve the same
    function.

17
Test 1, question 2 Answer
  • Backgrounds are intended for documents that will
    be viewed on the Web, and watermarks for printed
    documents or documents that will be displayed in
    print layout view.

Word helps you with this. For example, when you
add a background fill effect, Word automatically
switches to Web layout view if youre not already
there. And you cannot add a printed watermark if
youre in Web layout view Word makes the Printed
Watermark command unavailable.
18
Lesson 2
  • Adding a border, shading, or fill effect

19
Adding a border, shading, or fill effect
  • Borders, shading, and decorative fill effects
    arent just for holiday newsletters. Word offers
    a range of options for framing and emphasizing
    text, tables and table cells, graphics, and
    entire pages.
  • This lesson introduces these ready-made and
    customizable options and shows you the basics of
    how to add them to your document.

Page borders
  • You can add full or partial borders to any
    portion of any page of a document. Word provides
    a variety of built-in page borders, from
    businesslike to fancy.
  • You start from the Page Border tab in the Borders
    and Shading dialog box (Format menu).

21
Page borders
  • From the Page Border tab, you can choose
  • The type of overall border, from a simple box to
    shadowed to 3-D to a custom style of your design.
  • The line style, color, and thickness.
  • The artistic style, which can be fun if your
    document is informal or tied to a special
    occasion, event, or holiday.

Page borders
You can preview the design right inside the
dialog box, so its easy to see how your chosen
effects will look.

23
Borders for text, tables, and graphics
  • You can put borders around discrete chunks of
    text to set them apart. You can also use borders
    to set off tables and graphics, as shown in the
    picture.
  • To add a border, you select the text, table,
    table cell, or graphic. Then open the Borders and
    Shading dialog box, click the Borders tab, and
    choose the style, width, color, and so on.

24
Borders for text, tables, and graphics
  • Note that if youre working with AutoShapes (a
    particular type of Word graphic that you insert
    by using the AutoShapes command), the method for
    adding a border is different.

After selecting the shape, you use the Line Color
and Line Style buttons on the Drawing
toolbar.

25
Shading
  • You can add shading to text, tables, or pages by
    using the Shading tab in the Borders and Shading
    dialog box.
  • As with borders, you can experiment with colors
    and styles, and preview the effects.

Shading emphasizes the heading and pull quote.
26
Shading
  • Here, that preview is particularly helpful
    because the color and gradient you choose for the
    shading can make the words on the page hard to
    read.

You always want to make sure that the effect you
choose doesnt overpower the text itself.
Shading emphasizes the heading and pull quote.
27
Shading
  • As with borders, the shading for AutoShapes works
    differently than it does for text and tables.
    Select the shape, and then use the Fill Color
    button on the Drawing toolbar.

Shading emphasizes the heading and pull quote.
28
Quick table effects
  • If you specifically want to set apart or spruce
    up a table, take a look at the Table AutoFormat
    feature. It provides built-in border, shading,
    and color schemes.
  • The schemes are great because the designs are
    unified and professional, and they save you the
    hassle of manually applying separate effects.

Quick table effects
  • To apply a Table AutoFormat scheme, first select
    the table you want. Then click through and make
    your choices in the Table AutoFormat dialog box
    (Table menu).

The preview shows exactly what your choice will
look like. If you feel creative, or if you find a
style that you like but want to change a piece of
it, you can modify it.

Graphic fill effects
  • You can color drawing objectsAutoShapes, text
    boxes, WordArt, and objects on the drawing
    canvaswith fill effects such as gradients.
  • If you have one of these types of objects in your
    document and want to add a fill, first select it.

32
Graphic fill effects
  • Then on the Drawing toolbar, click the arrow next
    to the Fill Color button to open the Fill
    Effects dialog box.

Use the tabs to add patterns, gradients,
textures, and other effects.

34
Test 2, question 1
  • To add borders or shading to text or to a whole
    page, you start from which central place? (Pick
    one answer.)
  1. The Borders and Shading dialog box.
  2. The Font dialog box.
  3. The Drawing toolbar.

35
Test 2, question 1 Answer
  • The Borders and Shading dialog box.

To access this dialog box, which has separate
tabs for each type of effect, you click Borders
and Shading on the Format menu.
36
Test 2, question 2
  • Whats the quickest way to add visual formatting
    to a table? (Pick one answer.)
  1. Add borders to individual rows and columns, and
    then apply shading in the same sequence.
  2. Apply a Table AutoFormat scheme.

37
Test 2, question 2 Answer
  • Apply a Table AutoFormat scheme.

Word offers an array of built-in coordinated
table schemes with borders, shading, colors, and
other formatting that you can apply all at once
instead of in separate steps.
38
Lesson 3
  • Creating special text effects

39
Creating special text effects
  • How do you emphasize text? Often its the old
    standbys, bold and italic, or maybe the
    occasional application of all caps.
  • But Word offers a range of graphical formatting
    gemssuch as embossing, drop caps, WordArt, and
    animationsthat can add strong visual impact when
    used sparingly.

Special font effects
  • You can add a great deal of impact to text just
    by changing the font effect.
  • Start by opening the Font dialog box (Format
    menu). Under Effects, in the center section,
    youll see four effects.

Shadow, outline, emboss, and engrave font effects
41
Special font effects
  • Shadow darkens text and adds a slight shadow
    behind it.
  • Outline removes the solid fill of the text,
    leaving just an outline.
  • Emboss makes the text look like its raised off
    the page in relief.
  • Engrave makes the text appear pressed into the
    page.

42
Special font effects
  • Some usage tips
  • These effects often show up best when you use a
    larger font size.
  • In many cases, the effects look great when used
    in combination with other more basic effects,
    such as different fonts and font styles (for
    example, bold and italic).

Shadow, outline, emboss, and engrave font effects
43
Special font effects
  • Some usage tips
  • Like anything fancy, these effects tend to work
    best when used sparingly, for example when
    limited to headings or emphasis text.

Create a drop cap
  • Think of an ancient illuminated text, or the
    start of a fairy tale. That O in Once upon a
    time. In modern typography, thats referred to
    as a drop cap.
  • Its easy to create a drop cap in Word to convey
    elegance at the start of your document.

The drop cap elegantly emphasizes the first
letter on the page.
45
Create a drop cap
  • Select the letter you want to turn into a drop
    cap, and then click Drop Cap on the Format menu.

The letter you selected appears in a text box,
where you can select it and make changes if you
want, just the way you would with regular text.
The drop cap elegantly emphasizes the first
letter on the page.
46
Add WordArt
  • WordArt gives your words a graphic edge, turning
    any text into a shadowed, skewed, rotated, or
    stretched version of itself.
  • To add WordArt, you use the WordArt Gallery,
    which you get to from the Insert menu, Picture
    command, or by clicking the Insert WordArt button
    on the Drawing toolbar.

WordArt provides quick effects such as shading
and 3-D.
47
Add WordArt
  • Once you insert WordArt, you can use the WordArt
    toolbar to change it.

The toolbar appears as soon as you insert and
then select the WordArt, and lets you change
things like the curve of the text, the background
color, the space between letters, and so on.
WordArt provides quick effects such as shading
and 3-D.
48
Animate text
  • If youre working on a Web page or a Word
    document that will be viewed online, you can
    animate text. Its a matter of adding a simple
    font effect.
  • Just select the text that you want to animatefor
    example, a headingand then open the Font dialog
    box (Format menu). On the Text Effects tab,
    choose from the selection of animation effects.

49
Animate text
  • As with any high-impact effect, its best to use
    text animation sparingly, limiting your
    application to individual words and short
    phrases.

Otherwise, you risk diluting the impact, causing
visual clutter, and in extreme cases, rendering
text unreadable.

Suggestions for practice
  1. Add a high-impact font effect.
  2. Animate text.
  3. Insert WordArt.

  • Which of the following best practice guidelines
    applies to the use of special text effects? (Pick
    one answer.)
  1. Be sparing.
  2. Variety makes the biggest impact.
  3. Consistency is key for example, if one heading
    is animated, they all should be.

52
Test 3, question 1 Answer
  • Be sparing.

Special text effects have the most impact when
you limit them.
53
Test 3, question 2
  • How would you change WordArt that you just
    inserted? (Pick one answer.)
  1. Use the Drawing toolbar.
  2. Choose options on the AutoShapes menu.
  3. Use the WordArt toolbar.

54
Test 3, question 2 Answer
  • Use the WordArt toolbar.

This toolbar appears as soon as you insert and
select the WordArt, and you can use it to change
many aspects of the WordArts appearance.
