    Is it possible to create my own shaped text box? Please help! Thanks!

      Hi, just wondering is it possible to create my own shape for a text block? Becuase the only thing i can see is a simple rectangle that you can resize or reshape, but other than that nothing. I know you could just skew the box to the needed shape but this also warps the text which i cant do. If anyone knows anything it would be much appriciated.

      Thanks in advance

          It sounds like you want to put your text inside a circle, ellipse, or other
          shape besides a rectangle. I don't know of any way to do this in fireworks.
          Also, I am not aware of native dreamweaver function that makes it work, but
          here is a CSS way to do it.

          Good luck,
