    Curving words

    stu legend
      I want to write a few words then bend them into a semi circle shape. I know this can be done in Photoshop but wanted to know if it could be done in Fireworks version MX2004. If it can't be done is there any add-on software I could down load ? Please help! Cheers.

          Easy to do in MX2004. Type the text. Draw a circle (ellipse tool with
          shift key held down). Select text and circle. The from the menu bar:
          Text > Attach to path

          Experiment with different size circles etc. If you just want the text
          curving and no curve visible, set both the fill and the stroke to none.

              Hi David

              Thanks for your help on curving the words a while back. My new problem is curving the words in 2 directions. At the moment I can only curve the letters one way around the circle (from the top of the cirlce) But if I want the letter to follow the curve at the bottom of the circle it doesn't work. It just bounces to the top of the circle. I've tried a few things but have no idea how to do this task. Any help would be very much appreciated.
              Cheers
