The Quick Style is one of the best options in the Drawing group, there are many designs in quick style list that we can use it for shapes or objects. The Quick style management can be shaped outline color, shape fill, and shape effects.
Shape Effects: Shape effect is having a list of interesting effects like reflection, shadow, 3-d rotation, glow, and bevel that we can apply on our objects and pictures.
Note: Some options that work with shapes cannot work with text and some that work with text cannot work with shapes. Don’t be disappointed if an option works with text but not with the shape.
