Text on Paths with Vertical Strokes, Please!

Recommended Posts

What does this mean exactly? Text on paths.  With vertical strokes.  As a long time user of both of those programs, I feel like it must be something I've used all the time, but I don't recognize it from the description.  I wonder if you are describing text on a path with the "arched" effect vs the "arc" effect.  The arch is vertical, while the arc causes the vertical part of the letters to follows the angle of the path.

I interpret it as 















Currently I know of no simple straightforward way to do vertical text.

Mac Pro (Late 2013) Mac OS 12.7.2 
Affinity Designer 2.3.1 | Affinity Photo 2.3.1 | Affinity Publisher 2.3.1 | Beta versions as they appear.

I have never mastered color management, period, so I cannot help with that.

Hi @j_random_guy and @Kuttyjoe

I'm not the OP but I've seen this post earlier this day. I understood the question that he or she is looking for something like this:



This can be accomplished to some extent in APh with the Mesh Warp Tool. But it is not very exact because it is not possible to constrain the moves to a vertical direction.

You cannot do this in Designer, but in Photo you can do it with Filter > Distort > Shear.
