I’m trying to create circular text on a path, which I can do, but I do not understand how these friggin handles work so that ALL of the text is on the outside of the path. The seems to want to either put it all inside the curve or it will split it. I’m sure it’s just a learning curve, but man, it’s frustrating for something that should be intuitively easy. I have tried a myriad of combinations with the green and red handles to no avail. Help???

 

thanks!

I’m so frustrated by this. Please, another of your wonderful explainer videos. Firstly the video tells you to touch either inside or outside the path depending on how you want the text to wrap. The only thing that works for me is to click ON the path. 
Secondly, I want my text on the outside of the path around the bottom of a circle. I can get the text around the outside at the top but not around the outside of the bottom. See screenshot. And what do the orange and light green control handles do? It’s mystifying. I assume that dark green and red mean start and end of the text respectively. 
please help. This software is awesomely intuitive to use, but this feature is absolutely mystifying. A control panel might help?
