    Type on a path tool!



      I'm creating a new poster where all the copy follows a diagonal basegrid (see image attached for reference).

      Due to the size of the title, this would be split in 3 or 4 lines and I wondered if there is a way to allow the full copy to follows the same path tool. At the moment, when I select the + for the copy, this is placed on a box text and doesn't follow the path.Screen Shot 2017-08-12 at 14.25.46.png

          1. Start by drawing a series of diagonal lines.
          2. Convert each line to a 'Type on a Path' line, by clicking on the line with the Type on a Path tool.
          3. Start typing on the first line. When you get to the end of the line, select the Selection tool and click on the Out port.
          4. With the loaded text icon, click somewhere along the line. Ensure you see the 'link' icon before you click.
          5. Repeat steps 3 and 4 or each line.

            Did you try Shear Tool?


            Shear and Rotation angles can be adjusted in Control Panel, entering exact numbers.
