How to accurately center text along a circular path?

Recommended Posts


I would like the text centered at the top and bottom of a circular path.I adjusted the red/green arrows to the sides of the circle, highlighted the text, and selected "align center" for the text. This seems to be centered... is this accurate?

Hi Sirenetta

Welcome to Affinity Forums :)

You don't need to adjust the handles manually. Draw the circle, then go to menu Layer ▸ Convert to Text Path then press the Centre Align button in the context toolbar (with one of the text tools selected) to center the text and start typing. It will be accurately placed ion the middle.
