How do I easily create perfectly round WordArt circles?

The processes are simple for both PowerPoint 2003 and 2007.

PowerPoint 2003

  • Type the text in a regular text field that you'd like to apply to WordArt – see below. Not all of the symbols translate to WordArt, so you may need to use a character like what is shown below to separate your words or phrases.
  • After you've typed you your text, triple click on the text so that it is all highlighted
  • Click on the WordArt menu button and select the circular text – it's the text that arcs
  • Click OK
  • Your text will appear in the WordArt screen
  • Select the font you wish to use, and don't worry about the setting the size of the font
  • Click OK
  • The WordArt will come in to your document as an elongated oval, but you want it to be perfectly round
  • Click on the WordArt and then right click
  • Select "Format WordArt"
  • Click on the "Size" menu tab
  • Make the height and width the same: make them both 3", for example
  • Click OK
  • Move the yellow text marker around the circle until the beginning of the text and end of the text meet
  • Easy formatting for perfectly round WordArt

PowerPoint 2007

  • Type the text in a regular text field that you'd like to apply to WordArt – see below. You can insert any symbols you need, they will all translate
