  1. Click the WordArt you want to change.

Important: The Text Effects Text Effects menu button menu is not the same as the Shape Effects Shape Effects menu button menu. If you don't see Transform at the bottom of the menu, make sure you've clicked the Text Effects menu.

Tip:  You can also change the look of your WordArt by rotating or flipping it, or resizing it.
