    Editing Curved Text in fireworks

    abhishek77 Level 1
      in fireworks, when i edit curved text from a psd file originally created within photoshop, the text loses its curve and becomes straight. Is there a way around this?

      This happens when i change font type, size or add more characters to it.

          No, what's happening is the text is using the original render created from PhotoShop. But as soon as you edit it in Fireworks, Fireworks re-renders the text. The problem is there is currently a lot of incompatibility between PhotoShop and Fireworks when it comes to text. Let's hope there are some PhotoShop-Fireworks text integration improvements in the future for Fireworks! -- put your vote here:

          In what way is the text curved? You can attach text to a curved path in Fireworks, so it might be possible to recreate the effect.

            The only issue with text is when its curved when editing a psd file even created within fireworks or photoshop. however editing curved text saved as a png file within fireworks works fine. Other than that i feel fireworks is a great and light tool.
