Creating Path Type

InDesign’s text on a path works a bit differently than that in XPress. 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 8. You can place type along any path—even the edge of a frame (but not along compound 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.
