Chapter 3. TEXT >  Text on a Path

Text on a Path

When you create an object such as a text frame, the outside shape of the frame is called the object's path. Not only can InDesign fit text inside a path, InDesign 1.5 lets you position text so that it runs along the outside of a path.

To add text to a path:

1.
Choose the Path Type tool in the Toolbox .

Figure 3.58. The Path Type tool in the Toolbox.


2.
Move the tool so that it is near the path. A small plus sign appears next to the tool cursor .

Figure 3.59. The plus sign next to the Path Type cursor indicates you can click to add text to the path.


3.
Click. A blinking insertion point appears on the path.

4.
Type the text. Use any of the text controls to select or modify the text.
