Retain previous version of WordArt in Microsoft Word, so to insert WordArt you choose from a gallery of styles, enter your text &go.
Currently, each time you want to use WordArt, you must, in effect, create your own WordArt style, choosing separately, text effect (shadow, reflection, etc. etc.), then 3-D or rotation or direction of text or..... I don't have time to have to do this each time.
