Text on a Path

Recommended Posts

I've been able to do some basic text on a path, but trying to get something specific seems a bit more daunting.  I guess it's because the little green and/or red icons aren't really explained well.  For example, how do you put text on the inside of a path, but not reversed?  How do you move it further away from the actual path itself while maintaining the path shape?  Could someone explain the text on a path other than just draw a shape and click on it?  Something a bit more about controlling the actual text on the path?

Hi Wizaerd,

What are you trying to achieve in particular? Can you post a sample image?

You can use the Baseline control in the context toolbar to move the text away from the path. You can also use the same control to move the text to inside the path without reversing it. Use Tracking and Kerning controls from the Paragraph panel to fine tune the text if needed.

Here's two video tutorials that may also help:

I don't have an image anymore, I eventually just gave up on it.  But I tried to have someone's first name on the top outer side of an elipse, with the last name along the inside path bottom of the (duplicated) ellipse.  I couldn't get the name on the inside bottom to go where I wanted it...
