Microsoft Publisher has a feature that can change the shape of the WordArt Text; this feature is called Change Shape. You do not only need to use the Text Effect tool to customize your WordArt text to look attractive; you can also use the Change Shape tool to give your WordArt text a distinctive and appealing look.
The Change Shape is a tool that allows the user to choose the overall shape of the WordArt. The Change Shape tool does not work with random text; it has to be WordArt.
