How do I adjust paths?

Post#1 by runSPOTrun13 » 28 Nov 2016, 04:57


When I'm doing a circular logo, How can I adjust the path along the outer edge of the circle? It seems that when I use the paths tool I don't have an easy option for where the text starts and ends...is there an easy way to center text on a path?

after you install script.
You can create a circular path (from selection).
Then right click the path -> Tools -> Text Along Path.
Then after you create the Text.
You can click on rotate tool -> pick Path for Transform in Tool Options and rotate the created Text to wherever you'd like.

alright you have mastered text along path :D
For the bottom text, you can flip the path, and have the text go counter clockwise.
