Chapter 3. Text and Tables > Text on a Path

Text on a Path

Set a Start Point for the Text

Sometimes, InDesign ignores the position of my cursor when I click a path with the Text on a Path tool, and starts the text in an entirely different place. Argh!


Text on a path is basically a one-line paragraph in a text “frame” that is the length of the path. So, when You click an insertion point with the Type on a Path tool, InDesign uses the current paragraph alignment to figure out where to start the text, just as it would with a normal text frame.
