Yeah, this is nice and all, for I’m using it for a project. However, how the friggin’ HELL do you turn the effects OFF without having to just undo the whole thing?! >_>

To clear the effects from any text, click on Text Effect icon and choose “Clear Text Effects” option.

How can I resume normal formatting in Word 2010 without losing the text effects just applied. I do NOT want to clear the text effects already applied. I just want to resume normal formatting.
