Format Object or Format Text Effects Glow and Soft Edges pane

Important: 

  • When you change options in this dialog box, the changes are immediately applied to your picture, shape, text, or other object, making it easy to see the effects of the changes in your picture without closing the dialog box. However, since the changes are instantly applied, it is not possible to click Cancel in this dialog box. To remove changes, you must click Undo Button image on the Quick Access Toolbar for each change that you want to remove.

  • You can simultaneously undo multiple changes that you made to one dialog box option, as long as you did not make changes to another dialog box option in between.

  • You may want to move the dialog box so that you can see both the picture, shape, text, or other object and the dialog box at the same time.
