Then, click the object to which you want to apply a bevel effect. Next, on the Format tab, in the Control Formatting group, click Shape Effects, then click Bevel and choose a bevel effect. Notice that the bevel effects are indexed from left to right, and then top to bottom. So the first item, under No Bevel, has the value 0. Then, under Bevel, the first row contains bevel effects with values from 1 to 4. The second row from 5 to 8, and the third row from 9 to 12.
