I have CS2. Is it just me or is it frustrating typing on a curve such as a circle in Illustrator? When you try to spin the text I find it jumps around, partially disappears behind one of the guides or something. I have also used Corel and it seems much easier on that whether is aligning the text, or flipping it around from a top curve to a bottom curve.
Any tips on how to work this better would be very much appreciated. Thanks.
Type on a Path is simply broken in CS2. The only solution is to upgrade to CS3, where its a bit better, or CS4 where it's much improved.
I have to agree with Scott and I think you will be happier with CS 4.
Especially text on a path. And particularly on a curved path.
