Creating Path Type

To create path type in QuarkXPress, you use one of the four tools dedicated to that function or you convert a text box into a text path. InDesign works a bit differently. It doesn’t use specialized tools to create the path: Instead, you can use any of the path creation and editing tools which we describe in Chapter 12. You can create path type on any open or closed path (but not compound paths). InDesign can’t convert shapes to paths.

When you want to change a regular path into a text path, choose the Path Type tool, normally hidden under the Type tool (or press Shift-T). Then move the cursor over the path until you see a small + cursor. This indicates that if you click, or if you click and drag, you’ll turn an ordinary path into a path type text frame (see Figure 73-1).
