Windows 7: Can't access text effects in Word 2010

Can't access text effects in Word 2010

I'm "scundered" to only now discover a whole raft of text effects are available within Word 2010 except I can't access them!! That's partly the reason I'm only now realising they exist, as the button's been greyed out and I've continually missed spotting it to investigate until I read about them online and twigged.

Anyone any ideas on how I can get them to show again? I've gone through the options and checked they're all in the menu ok and even tried to set up a new group and put them in there, but same problem. The button shows but as unavailable. I've no issues with any other buttons in the program being like this but given the bulk of my Word usage is text editing, I'm SO upset to have not spotted this a LONG time ago, as no doubt the beta will soon be closing and I've no means to afford the full pkg. So ideally I'd like to be able to utilise the functions and set text into documents that at least then I'll have for future use.

I could be wrong but I don't remember that feature being enabled in Beta

Bit strange that if that is the case - why allow absolutely everything else bar 1 single function? Very odd but you could indeed be right
