Curved Text

Nov 17, 2012 4:34 PM

How can I make text go around in a circle?

I tried doing arc in the warped text option but it's not round enough.

    Create your "circle" as a Path, then use the Horizontal Type Tool, but click ON the Path.

     

    Probably the easiest way to get that circular Path is to choose the Elliptical Marquee Tool, and hold down Shift+Alt to draw that circle from the center, and to constrain it as a circle. Then, with that Selection active, go to the Paths Palette/Panel, and choose Make Work Path.

     

    Good luck, and hope that helps,

    Create the circle using the vector shape tools and create it as a path. Then use the normal text tool. As you hover over the active path, the cursor should change and display the text anchor perpendicular to the path.

    In your case, you had the Shape Option selected. As Mylenium points out, you need that set to Path.

     

    Good luck,

    Hit U, then the active Tool should be the Rectangle, Rounded Rectangle, Ellipse, … Tool.

    Depending on your settings hitting U or shift-U will select the next one of the secondaries – or you can just long-click the Tool to expand the list and select the intended one manually.
