Text along path (SOLVED)

Post#1 by RJKD » 08 Sep 2017, 13:06


I could really do with some help please, I can't figure out how to get the date on the bottom of my path. I know this is a comprehension issue, not my strength. Any help would be gratefully appreciated, I attach an XCF (I can't attach original as it's a Fellowship logo I'm working on), thankyou in advance.

Richard, if you like to place the date at the top of the circle, go to the path dialog > select the layer with the date on it and flip it vertical.
The flip tool must be selected on the path option (see print screen.)

If you like to place the date at the bottom then you have to select the whole circle in the path dialog and flip it vertical.
Also with the path option selected on the flip tool.

I'll add the downloaded xcf-file, on that one I flipped already the circle and made a test.
