Hi everyone,


I'm new on Affinity Designer and I got a problem concerning the path type. ( I've already checked the instructions in the helped menu but that doesn't work for me ). I hope you'll understand me because I work on the french version so that the traduction of the tools may not be exact.


Well here's my problem:


First I create the curve that will define the curve of my text, then I use the text box tool and I click on the curve I've juste created in order to insert a text that follows the curve. 


The text insertion zone is in the rectangular zone that defines the curve but the text doesn't follow the curve !! 


The photo attached shows where my text insertion zone is and how my text appears when I try the make a path type


Thank you so much if someone here can help me, I've tried everything and I'd be very grateful ! :)

Hi AntoninSls,

Welcome to Affinity Forums :)

First draw your path, then select the Artistic Text Tool and mouse-over the path until a T with a small wave below appears. Click on the path and start typing.

Alternatively you can also select the path (or shape), go to menu Layer ▹ Convert to Text Path and start typing.

For more info check Affinity Designer Help ▹ Text ▹ Text on a path.

Thank you MEB,


it works perfectly :) 


Designer is so much intuitive and developed than Adobe CS ... I definitely go to the Serif side !!
