- Select the slide you want to add word art to.

The word art is created.
Unlike regular text, with word art, you have the ability to change the border on the text itself.
- Select the word art you want to format.
- Click the Border color button.
- Select a border color.
- Click the Border weight button.
- Select a border weight.
The border around the text changes.
Another important difference between word art and a regular text box is that resizing a word art box resizes the text within it.
