Please forgive, but I'm struggling.
I'm having issues with threaded text.
I've created my desired paths for threaded text, essentially a rainbow, that aligns with my package design. When I create threaded text it behaves wierdly. The following occurs:
1) creating threaded text with my rainbow paths, it creates the paths upside down. I've figured out how to rememdy this with the path options, but wish it didn't default to upside down.
2) My path layers for each row are in decending order, i.e. - would like text to cascade top to bottom; however, when I start typing, it uses the bottom line first causing my paragraph to read from bottom to top. This is incredibly frustrating!
Can someone give me some insight on how to remedy this? And can you explain why it might be consistently doing this? I expect I'm not doing something right.
Thanks in advance!
I'll take a guess....
You created the bottom arc first, then copied it to make the other paths above it, right?
Text threading depends a great deal on object stack order in some instances. You want the first thread element to be on the bottom, then the next, above it, and so on.
If you had created the top arc first, then copied it to make the arcs below it, you'd have no problem. You may need to remove the text thread, reorder the paths approriately, then reapply the threading.
