Transcript:Create 3D Objects with Microsoft PublisherHi, I'm Don Schechter for About.com Computing.
Today I'll show you how to create a 3D object in Microsoft Publisher. This is a great tool to jazz up your publication. First open Microsoft Publisher. I will choose a document from the pre-designed publications for print. Under layout in the left task pane, I will choose the blank one.
Selecting Shape to Make 3DTo insert a shape go to the left toolbar and click the shape you want to make 3D. I will just draw a circle. Make sure your object is selected and go up to the toolbar at the top and click the 3D style icon. A drop down menu will appear where you can choose the type of 3D effect.
Adjust the 3D EffectTo adjust your 3D effect, go to the 3D icon and select 3D Settings. A tool bar will appear with different options. You can tilt the object different ways and adjust the depth as well as the direction and the lighting.
3D Object's Style and TextureYou can also choose from different surface settings such as plastic or metal. Change the color of the object by clicking on the 3D color drop down menu at the end of the 3D Toolbox.
Fixing 3D ObjectsTo delete the 3D Effect, select the object and go up to the 3D icon and click NO 3D. To delete the whole object, select it and press Delete or right-click and choose Delete Object.
