Circular Text: how to space letters equally?

Recommended Posts

I’m trying to place text on a circular path so that the letters are evenly spaced, but after dragging the start/end handles as far as I can there is still more space between the first and last letters than there is between the other letters (see photo). How can I make it so all the letters have the same amount of space between them on the path?

If I drag the end handle any further the final W switches over to the inside of the path.

Type a letter. Select layer. Select point transform tool and drag rotation point to suit circle radius. Duplicate selection and rotate in Transform studio. In my example I used -30degrees. Keep duplicating and rotating.

Thanks — I realized after reading this that Power Duplicating would let me paste the copied letter AND apply the rotation at the same time, which helped streamline things. Figured out how many letters I wanted and divided 360º by that number to get my rotation angle. I still wonder if I’m missing something about how to distribute type/objects evenly around a shape though. Thanks again!
