When you view a document containing font animation, the line of text at the bottom of the document window may not show the font animation.
This problem may occur in any view.
If the last line of text is partially obscured by the document window, then it will not show the font animation. This behavior is by design.
In Word 97, the following font animation effects are available:
- Blinking Background
- Las Vegas Lights
- Marching Black Ants
- Marching Red Ants
- Sparkle Text
To format your text with font animation, follow these steps:
- In the Word document, select the text to apply animation to.
- On the Format menu, click Font.
- Click to select the Animation tab.
- Under Animations, click to select the desired animation, and then click OK.
NOTE: If you click Default on the Animation tab, you are prompted with the following message:
Do you want to change the default font to , <font
This change will affect all new documents based on the NORMAL
If you click Yes, the default font uses the animation effect in all new Word documents.
If you click No, the default font does not change, and does not use the animation effect.

Or, click the Office Assistant, type font animation, click Search, and then click to view the "Create animated text" topic.
