WordArt: Cannot Reverse WordArt 1.0 to WordArt 2.0 Translation


The information in this article applies to:

  • Microsoft WordArt, versions 1.0, 2.0
  • Microsoft Publisher 2.0


You can convert WordArt 1.0 objects to WordArt 2.0, but you cannot convert them back again to WordArt 1.0.

The first time you double-click a WordArt 1.0 object in Publisher 2.0, the following message appears:

TIP: You can convert WordArt 1.0 objects to WordArt 2.0.

To convert to WordArt 2.0, click the Edit menu, choose Microsoft WordArt Object, and then choose Convert.

NOTE: WordArt 1.0 objects may look different in WordArt 2.0, and cannot be converted back.

Choose OK to return to your Publication. Choose Cancel if you don't want this tip to appear again. Press F1 for more information on converting WordArt.

To convert WordArt 1.0 to WordArt 2.0, do the following:

  1. Select the WordArt object.
  2. From the Edit menu, choose Microsoft WordArt 1.0 Object.
  3. Choose Convert. The Convert dialog box appears.
  4. In the Object Type field, choose Microsoft WordArt 2.0.
  5. A message at the bottom of the dialog box states that you cannot reverse this conversion. Choose OK.

The object is converted to WordArt 2.0.


The fonts used in WordArt 1.0 are not available to WordArt 2.0. Instead, WordArt 2.0 uses the TrueType fonts that are installed on your system. For this reason, the quality and resolution of WordArt 2.0 objects is greatly improved over WordArt 1.0.

When you update a WordArt 1.0 object to WordArt 2.0, the following font remapping occurs:
