  • Creating word art

    Is it possible to use Microsoft "Word" to create word art? If so I would I do it.

    It's possible and fairly easy if you want all of your letters to be in a row (curves count as rows.) Look for the slanty A at the bottom of the screen and follow the prompts. You can expand or contract the type but I have not found a way to move individual letters. Personally, I use Print Shop to create my word art.

      I use word to make my lettering printouts. I find the little drop down menu at the corner of the font bar (just above the working area) I then select my font the size and then I select outline, underline, and italics. I just draw in the base with a pencil just above the underline.

        There is a free program named Inkscape available. It is very good at word art as well as merging graphics and text into patterns. All sorts of manipulation is possible and quite easy to learn. There is a virtually limitless supply of fonts available for free to create your word art.

              I have made a number of those Harvey puzzles. They are a lot of fun. You really need to be patient and let the blade cut. Even the slightest pressure can ruin your puzzle piece fit. My go to is a Pegas #3 MGT....
