old word art in office word 2007

by Gavinbiesheuvel / April 13, 2008 8:30 PM PDT

i use Microsoft Office 2007... its a fantastic set of programs which prove very useful to me!
however in Word 2007, the clip art available is not the new Office 2007 kind which is available in Excel 07, Powerpoint 07, etc...
The clip art available in my office 2007 is the old, really ugly kind, available in office 2003... word is the only program out of the entire office suite which acts oddly. What can i do to get Word 07 to display and use the correct word art?
here are some screen captures!
Word 07:
Excel 07:

if possible, please advise me on how to make the Word wordart look like the excel one! Thanks!

I don't use Office 2007 or Word 2007 so I am probably off the mark here, but in your Word, WordArt image I see a down arrow under
the "A - WordArt" menu icon.

Did you try clicking that arrow?

nope, thats not it! sadly!!! Grin
that arrow is just there because you can resize that box, and thus you would need to scroll down... Sad

Worth a try. Hopefully others here will have better ideas.

...exhausted your choices ? I do not use Office 2007, but it seems that, from your screen shots, you have choices of "Word Art" and "Letter Art" for each of the Office programs... perhaps you have only accessed only one of them ?
