How do you mean T? I've tried flipping the bottom text every which way and the outcome I posted is the only way I can make it legible.

What i mean, is you you can generate the text clockwise with your circular path.
Then you flip the circular path, and text along path that circular path to get a counter clockwise text for the bottom so that the text goes both ways but not upside down.

For example here i created text using clockwise path then height reference top of box.
Then flipped the circle, then created text using height reference bottom of box.
And rotated the text afterwards of course but you should get an idea from this.

I did this for GUG (defunct) so oldish, but it is for Gimp 2.8

Got it, I was flipping the text, thank you and thank you Rich, I've busted my backside achieving the outcomes I could have learned in 10 minutes with this video. There is an ocean of difference between a tutorial that teaches and a tutorial which is really a step guide to producing a desired outcome. I like them both, however the teaching tuts are hard to find.
