Chapter 26. Inserting Text Boxes > Sizing, Shaping, and Rotating Text Boxes

Sizing, Shaping, and Rotating Text Boxes

You can easily change the size or shape of a text box, although the shape will always be some variation on a rectangle. (You can, however, create a three-dimensional text box; see the later section in this chapter, "Adding a Text Box Shadow or Third Dimension.") If you want a nonrectangular container for text, see Understanding AutoShapes in Chapter 27. You can also rotate a text box in increments of degrees.

The easiest way to size or reshape a text box is to drag a selection handle. The most precise way is to use a menu command.
