  • In the popup window choose your image (or paste its URL) and click “Load”.
  • Once the image is loaded adjust it if necessary and click OK.
That’s it. Your custom image is ready to be used. Just Visualize your word art to see the results.

# How to make a word art in the shape of a number or a word?

# How to use icons (special characters) in word art?

Please read this blog post

# The size of words doesn’t seem accurate, how to fix it?

By default “Maximize” option is used for “Words size” parameter in “Layout” section. It means that words will be maximized to fit the available space when placed. Change it to “use size column from words table” to tell the generator to use “Size” value from “Words” section when placing words.

# How to make all words the same size?

Unfortunately (due to WordArt.com algorithm's nature) it is not possible to make all words *exactly* the same size. The algorithm tries to fill the selected shape at the first place in the meantime sacrificing the accuracy of words sizes. The best you can do is to select “use size column from words table” in “Layout” section and make all the sizes equal to 1 in “Words” table. This will keep all the words the same size as much as possible during visualization.

# How does the "Size" column from the "Words" table work?

Actually there are 2 modes that controls how the "Size" column is used during the visualization process. The modes are set in the "Layout" section for the "Words size" parameter:
1) "Maximize" mode means that the "Size" column will determine the words placing sequence. Words will be paced from the biggest size to the smallest, but will occupy the maximum available space at the moment of placing.
2) "Use size column from words table" mode means the words will be still placed from the biggest size to the smallest, but a word's size will be calculated based on the "Size" value and the available space at the moment of placing. It means that the generator will try to maintain the accurate sizes for words (as they are in the Words table), but if at some point of time there will be no enough room for a word with a specific size, the word's size will be decreased to fit it into the available space.

In “Words” section click on “URL options” button. Then change “Links pattern” to point to your site and click “Apply links pattern” button. Then visualize and save your word art.

# Can I import my list of words?

Prepare words data in CSV format with semicolon as the separator using “word;weight;color;angle;font;url” format (see example below). Then click “Import from text” button in Words section and paste words data in the text field to load them into your word art.

CSV example (all columns except the first one are optional, you can leave them empty):
Cloud;36;ffff00;0;Teen bold;1;http://www.google.com/search?q=Cloud
Demo;32;00ff00;0;Bangers Regular;0;http://www.google.com/search?q=Demo

# Can I use Excel for editing my words list?

Yes you can. Create an excel spreadsheet with your words data (see the screenshot below).
Then copy it (without header) and import using “Import text” button in Words section.

# Can I download my word art with the animation and add the animated version to a powerpoint presentation?

You can't download your word art with the animation. Animation is done in your browser only and therefore you can share your word art's link (in Download and Share section). Anyone who opens it will be able to see your word art with the animation.
