    Word Art Shadows (Word 97)

    There are 2 ways to get word art.

    Option 1: go to Insert | Object | MS Word art 3.2. With this method there is an option to put on (or remove) a shadow, but color choices are limited--no gradient colors, etc.

    Option 2: it I click the Insert Word Art button in the Draw toolbar, I get pre-made styles that have the colors I need, but with drop shadows that I don't want.

    Is there any way to get gradient, rainbow colors but not have the shadows?

    Use option 2, then on the drawing toolbar, 3-D button set it to no 3-D or click 3-D settings and set the depth to zero. This is with Word 2K, so I'll check 97 at home later tonight and post any changes tomorrow. HTH --Sam

    Under Option Two, insert the Word Art you wish & select the object. On the Drawing Toolbar is a shadow button. Click it & choose No Shadow. Save it as an autotext entry.

    Hope this helps.

    thanks to both of you--I don't know why I didn't see the 'Shadow' icon in the toolbar.
