You probably know that you can add #symbols to your Microsoft Word documents and PowerPoint presentations...
Normally you would add symbols to your pages from the Insert Tab, then #Symbol, and they would look like this.
They would be added as text in a line in Word or in a text box in PowerPoint. Symbols are a font and by default they would be black. You resize them by changing the font size. You could recolor by changing the font color.
However you can turn #symbols into #WordArt and make them any colour you want. You can use the default WordArt formatting or create your own by using the text fill, text outline and text effects options from the Shape Format Tab after you select the symbol.
