    curved text

    Level 7
      how do i achieve a curved text affect? i want some text to curve upwards,
      such as inside the bottom of a circle...

      if i write text and attach to a circle shape it adds it to the outside not
      the inside, so its curving the wrong way...

      thanks...

          Once attached to the circle, go to 'Text \ Reverse Direction' and it
          will move to the inside of the circle. Adjust the Kerning and Alignment
          to get it where you need it.

          Alternately, you could use the pen tool to to create the curved path
          shape you need instead of starting with a circle.
