While a picture may be worth a thousand words, a graphic may only include a few words or even a thousand. A straightforward technique to add design to your Microsoft Word documents is to employ the recognizable word bubble, which is meant to represent a person’s ideas or commentary on the page. Word includes simple insertion choices and unrestricted formatting for using word bubbles in Word documents. It refers to these graphic additions as “callouts.”

Step 1

Move to the Callouts section by clicking the “Shapes” button after selecting the “Insert” tab from the ribbon.

Step 2

Select either the Rectangular Callout or the Rounded Rectangular Callout word bubble. Keep in mind that once selected, the cursor will change to a plus sign.

Step 3

Place the cursor where you want it to be in the Word document and then press and hold the left mouse button. Release after dragging the text bubble to the size you wish. On the page, the bubble may be seen.

Step 4

To move the bubble to your preferred location, such as directly above a person’s head in an image on the page, click one of its corners or borders.

Step 5

To access the Drawing Tools tab at the top of the screen, click the bubble. The word bubble’s default color is medium blue with a dark blue border.

Step 6

On the ribbon of the Drawing Tools tab, select the “Shape Fill” menu. To remove the medium blue and replace it with a more conventional white backdrop, choose “No Fill.”

Step 7

If desired, choose a different color for the border of the bubble by clicking the “Shape Outline” box.

Step 8

By selecting the “Draw Text Box” button on the Drawing Tools tab’s ribbon, you can add text to the bubble. To construct a text area, click inside the word bubble and drag the mouse; once the required field appears in the page, release the button. To add text to the word bubble, begin typing. As with the previous steps, you may also format the text box’s fill and border.

Step 9

If you’re done, save the Word document; otherwise, keep adding word bubbles as you like.
