    warped text effects

    abhishek77
      is there any pluggin or extension that supports warped text similar to photoshop?
      i am able to create curved text within fireworks but it is time consuming as it requires a steady hand while i have noticed in photoshop, it does it automatically.

      i would prefer working with fireworks due to it being a small application and takes less cpu usage.

          Have you tried attaching Text to a Path?

            Check out NN_transform

              I have tried both methods.
              With text to path, i find it very time consuming depending on how i want the text to appear. With the NN_transform, it does not seem to work with fireworks cs3.

                can you show us an example of what you are trying to accomplish?

                  Did you read the instructions on the web site? The text must be
                  converted to paths first, then selected using the subselection tool.
                  Works fine in CS3.

                    Nice find Jim
                    produces almost identical to that of Photoshop.
