Microsoft Word 97

Blinking and Animated Text

Summary: In VERY small doses, add blinking or animated text to your Microsoft Word 97 documents.

This is one of those things that make me wonder - what exactly were the Word97 developers drinking when they finished this program? Well, you might as well try this at least once.

Select a section of text with your mouse. Right-click the text and choose "Font" from the popup menu that appears. On the multi-tabbed dialog box that follows, select the "Animation" tab. Now, select an animation that you would like to see. You can see examples of each animation in the preview window. When you are done, press "OK" to close the dialog box.

I think I'm going to start filing status reports this way with lights around my text. Wonder how that would look on my performance evaluation?
