Word - Shadow Option Missing from Toolbar/Formatting

Word - Shadow Option Missing from Toolbar/Formatting

Post by doverro » Sun, 23 Nov 2008 02:29:26


Version: 2004
Operating System: Mac OS X 10.4 (Tiger)
Processor: Power PC

I understand that Word should have a facility for adding a shadow to imported pictures.
According to the dropdown help, it's an option on the Formatting Palette under Shadow.
I don't seem to have that option. 'Shadow' doesn't appear.
Any ideas anyone?

Check the Text Wrapping on the image - if it's set to In Line with Text you
can't apply a Shadow. The image must be in the Draw layer (floating) in
order to apply effects such as that. Set the Wrapping to something other
than In Line & the Shadow group will be added to the FP.

Thanks *** Tax.
You've sorted the problem. Pity the 'help' within Word doesn't tell you though!
I'd been going round in circles.

Yeah, the Help is a work in progress & is getting better. The original when
2008 was released was a total atrocity.

Glad you got it sorted!
