Word 2010 has many text options--including glow, shadow, and reflection text effects.
But how much is too much? How can you make sure a text effect will enhance your message, not detract from it?
When you want to make your words pop with special effects, here are five tips to keep in mind.
Choose one effect or effect combination and one color theme for your text effects. And use text effects in specific, only in headings. Also, because text effects can make the text thicker and harder to read, consider using effects only for larger text, such as headings and the title.
If you apply a style to a heading and then apply text effects, you can select the heading, right-click the style in the Styles gallery, and then click Update style to match selection. Now all your headings with that style will display the same text effects.
People tend to avoid looking at ads or any content that looks like an ad, so take care to add effects that suit your content aren't flashy for the sake of flash.
Be sure that the text is still easy to read (and not a big blob of colorful shapes). Graphic designers will tell you that text is just shapes on the page. And they're right. But these shapes are communicating a message--and the effects are there to play a supporting role, not the star.

Choose effects that complement and enhance your information. For more information, see Add or remove text effects. For information about other typographical features, see OpenType options in the Font dialog box.

Small, quick and to the point. I like it (having just picked up on how to properly apply styles and such).
Word lets you create elements within documents that appear in numeric order, such as printed coupons or event tickets. You can automatically create sequentially numbered items by using field codes. First design the coupons or tickets; and, you can place multiple tickets on a page inside table cells, if you like.
If the pages in your document are printed the wrong way around, you can reverse the print order by selecting File, Options, Advanced, and then scrolling to find the Print group of options (these are different from and in addition to the Printing Options in the Display settings). Locate and change the setting of the Print Pages in Reverse Order checkbox; if it was enabled, disable it, or vice versa. Finish by clicking OK. In the future, documents will print in reverse order, saving you the trouble of having to reorder them. This setting will remain in place the next time you open Word, and it will apply to all documents.
