To make your text more emphatic and draw attention to a specific part of the document, you can insert a text box (a rectangular frame that allows to enter text within it) or a Text Art object (a text box with a predefined font style and color that allows to apply some text effects).
You can add a text object anywhere on the page. To do that:
Note: it's also possible to insert a text box by clicking the Insert Autoshape icon at the top toolbar and selecting the shape from the Basic Shapes group.
The text within the text object is a part of the latter (when you move or rotate the text object, the text moves or rotates with it).
As an inserted text object represents a rectangular frame with text in it (Text Art objects have invisible text box borders by default) and this frame is a common autoshape, you can change both the shape and text properties.
To delete the added text object, click on the text box border and press the Delete key on the keyboard. The text within the text box will also be deleted.
Select the text box clicking on its border to be able to change its properties. When the text box is selected, its borders are displayed as solid (not dashed) lines.
Click the text within the text box to be able to change its properties. When the text is selected, the text box borders are displayed as dashed lines.
Note: it's also possible to change text formatting when the text box (not the text itself) is selected. In such a case, any changes will be applied to all the text within the text box. Some font formatting options (font type, size, color and decoration styles) can be applied to a previously selected portion of the text separately.
To rotate the text within the text box, right-click the text, select the Text Direction option and then choose one of the available options: Horizontal (is selected by default), Rotate at 90° (sets a vertical direction, from top to bottom) or Rotate at 270° (sets a vertical direction, from bottom to top).
To align the text vertically within the text box, right-click the text, select the Vertical Alignment option and then choose one of the available options: Align Top, Align Center or Align Bottom.
Other formatting options that you can apply are the same as the ones for regular text. Please refer to the corresponding help sections to learn more about the necessary operation. You can:
