OS Vista. I have PM 6.5 and trial of 7.
I want to know if I can accomplish this in PM. I am a novice. I want to make a free form shape, Put text around the outside of the shape, have the background transparent, so when I printout all I see is the text in the shape I want. Any help would be greatly appreciated. I also have Illustrator 7 and defunct Photoshop 4. Can't justify upgrades because I don't use them enough and can't keep up with upgrade costs.
I tried to do this and just became frustrated. Took a PM course over 10 years ago. Thanks in advance.
No. Create your design in Illustrator and place into PM7, which should accept the *.AI format.
However, with PM and Vista, all bets are off. Use your PM Licence to purchase a discounted upgrade to InDesign while the offer is still available. You will not regret it and wonder why you didn't do it years ago.

Thank you for your response.
