Automatic text-shaping ("Envelope distort" in Adobe Illustrator)


Recommended Posts

Before I retired I used Adobe Illustrator on the job, and one of my favorite effects was "contouring" text almost instantaneously to conform to a shape; the effect is called "Envelope Distort". The only method I've found in Designer involves pulling line points into place (very unsatisfactory, to say the least).

I'm hoping that a near-future version of Designer will will include this feature. I've attached a screenshot from an Illustrator demo.
