HI

I am trying to curve text into a uniform circle, say, like a ring donut. Can anybody point me in the right direction please before I pull the last of the hair out. There must be a pre-set way of doing this without having to go all long winded with the little handles and stuff.

In Designer, create a circle with the Ellipse tool. Hold down shift to make it a perfect circle. Then use Layer > Convert to Text Path. By default this uses the top and then the bottom half of the circle. Type the text for the top half, then press Return, and type the text for the bottom half. Use the Baseline button in the context toolbar to adjust so they line up (it will snap to useful positions).

 

If you don't want the two halves thing, then you have to adjust the little triangle handles, but they too snap to useful positions so it shouldn't be too fiddly.
