    Text at an angle

    KC29 Level 3

      Is there a better way (than the one I used) to create the effect shown on this attachment.

       

      The only way I could get text in that angle is to treat each line as a separate item. I couldn't find a way to do a block of type and then turn it all at a suitable angle

       

       

       

       

      PS I tried to use the "Insert image" feature instead of attachment, but it kept telling me that The content type of this image is not allowed

       

      What exactly can you insert as an image?

          KC,

           

          If I understand you in the right way, that you do have individual point type objects, and that you want each to rotate round its own centre, have you tried Object>Transform>Transform Each?

           

          Concerning images, have you tried using the Camera icon?

            Having individual poiont type objects was the way I solved the problem (but thanks for pointing out "Transform Each" because I'd missed that option).

            The problem I was trying to solve was if it is possible to put type at that angle if all the type was in one block, not separate items

            Concerning images, have you tried using the Camera icon?

            Yes, that was the icon which kept giving me the error message

              ClickDrag with the text tool to create an AreaType object.

              Select it as a whole object (black pointer).

              Use the Rotate Tool (not the bounding box transform handles) to rotate the AreaType object.

              use the white pointer reshape the containing path by adjusting its AnchorPoints. (Turn on SmartGuides to make rectangular alignment easy.)

                Thanks for that!

                 

                Exactly what I was looking for. And that has now also provided an answer for the same problem in Quark
