Text outline, the border that spans the perimeter of the font characters, is mainly used to make the slide titles or other text appear prominent. Taking this concept little further, you can make these outlines look fancier by using an attribute that’s rarely associated with text outlines but can provide a surprisingly different look, especially when applied to the text with thicker outlines. This is the Gradient Outline, and is not accessible from within the Text Outline gallery, but has been included within the Format Text Effects dialog box that we will explore later in this page.
