Text on a Path & Why is PNG Background Gray?

Recommended Posts

When I view this Designer image as a PDF (2019-Vermont-Blueberry-Festival-7.27.2019.pdf) 100% of the background is white. When I view it as a PNG, much of the BG, except for the blueberry illustration, is gray. Why does the PNG version show much of the background as gray? It's transparent when viewing it in Designer.

Also, how do I get Craftsbury Farmers Market to present on the bottom of the path, but as Craftsbury Farmers Market instead of upside down / reverse as it is now?

I’ve just had a go at recreating the text in Affinity Designer on iPad, and I couldn’t persuade it to go in the wrong direction!

Hi lbohen,

try using the reverse text path button at the top and also the baseline slider if your text falls inside the path/shape.

I'm a bit familiar with the "reverse text path" button and the "baseline slider". Can I use them on the Craftsbury Farmers Market portion of the path? How?

Hi lbohen,

yes you can. I usually copy and past the first one then you can reverse the new one, change font, colour etc.

Did you watch the video above from souacz? It's shows what you need to do. Remember to adjust start and end rotation points.
