I having been wondering how to attach text to a circular path in fireworks for some time now, a few months ago I played around with it and saw that it works great for a semi-circle of text that moves clockwise above the path, but I noticed that when I tried to add text to the bottom half of a circle moving moving counter-clockwise inside of the path that I ran into a few problems. Yesterday I started researching tutorials on another effect I had been wondering about for some time and that was creating a seal. In my research I found a FANTASTIC tutorial at the following location:
In following this tutorial I indirectly found my answer to adding "text to the bottom half of a circle moving moving counter-clockwise inside of the path".
However whenever I follow the steps to to do this by going to "Text > Attach to Path" then "Text > Reverse Direction" it does not quite cooperate. Whenever I try to change the offset (e.g offset -20) to center the text better, part of the text disappears, and I was wondering what's causing this.
try makng path loner if it's cutting off length
Are you saying increase the diameter of the circle and see if that works?
yes. if cut in half just extend length of bottom path
