Text boxes in Word are used to draw attention to specific text. Use a Word text box to add definition and make it stand out.
There are two kinds of effects you can apply to text boxes to give them a 3D appearance: 3-D Rotation and Bevel. 3-D Rotation makes text boxes appear as if you are viewing the text box from a different angle. Bevel adds thickness and a rounded edge to text boxes.
If you want, you can customize the 3-D Rotation. Select 3-D Rotation Options... from the drop-down menu and the Format Shape pane will appear. From here, you can adjust the rotation values.
If you've changed the shape of your text box, it's important to note bevel doesn't work with every type of shape.
If you want, you can customize the bevel effect. Select 3-D Options... from the drop-down menu. The Format Shape pane will appear. From here, you can modify the width, height, and depth of a bevel.
