Text On a Path
|Written by Daniel H|
Begin by creating a new document, say 400x400 . You can chose any background you want. For the purpose of this tutorial i will be using a white background with black text.
Now by using the text tool type the text you want to attach to the path.
Next draw out a path using either the pen tool, pencil tool, rectangle, or circular tool.
Now select both the text and the path (hold down SHIFT and click both a shape and a text).
With the text and shape selected go to the main menu, TEXT and and chose ATTACH TO PATH.
And now it should look like the picture below :
In this next section you will be show they ways you can change the color, size, position and more of the text.
You can also adjust the position of the text on the path by changing the alignment of the text. Right, left, center, justify.
In the next tutorial i will show you how you can use this tehnique in Flash, creating animated text, spinning around shapes.

Attach to Path is not highlighted. I'm trying to attach text to path on an image. I have typed text, created path with pen tool, clicked pointer tool, shift and hold, clicked text then path then clicked text on menu bar but Attach to path is not highlighted so cannot select it. Please tell me what I missed.
