Hi,

Does anyone have any idea how to fit text to a banner so that it looks nicer than the example I've attached? I need it to fit between the red lines.

You can for example also use instead of single positioned frametext letters here grafiktext and place it on a copy of the lower curve path, so it follows that path and move that onto your yellow shape. Further you can change font types and then adjust the whole "Dreamer" words character spacing and distance settings to your individual likes.

Thanks for your reply v_kyr. I did actually try that and although it looks better it's not quite the result I want. I would ideally like the text to 'mould to the shape', if you know what I mean.

You probably need something like the Mesh Warp tool in APhoto to do that (see attached quickie example)

But it's probably doable in Designer if you painstakingly manipulate each letter (curve) one by one.

Due to the fact that Boris Johnson is now our Prime Minister, punctuation, spelling and grammar will never be worried about ever again.  We now have far bigger problems to be worried about.

That looks pretty cool. Thanks Carl ... I'll give it a go.

Unfortunately the APhoto method converts my vectors to pixels and I don't want that. My option is now to 'painstakingly manipulate each letter' :)
