I know how to create a curvy text line by using pen tool and Text-Attach to Path command. That's easy. BUT...what if I want to PLACE that kinda curvy text on top of a real vector shape, say an ellipse. What should be my workflow? The way I do is...First I create a vector object, say, ellipse. Then I create some text. Then I use the same way as I described above (ie. select both things with shift key and go to Text-Attach to Path). But the problem is...The vector object disappears! And all I have instead is just a curvy text on top of where there USED TO BE the vector object.
But I want to keep BOTH-the text and the object together. How that can be achieved?
Duplicate your curvy object and then attach the text to the upper one in the layers list.
