Chapter 8. Extreme Makeover: Symbols, Br... > Adding Text to the Banner

Adding Text to the Banner

What’s a banner in the previous tip without text right? To add text to the banner, simply create the type that you’d like to have flow along the banner. Then drag the text into the Symbols palette (Window>Symbols) to make it a symbol. Now, select the banner and look in the Appearance palette (Window>Appearance). Double-click the 3D Extrude & Bevel item to modify the 3D effect you used to create the banner. Click the Map Art button and cycle through the Surfaces until you find the one of the front of the banner (look at the red highlights on the actual banner to see what surface is currently selected). Then, choose the new text symbol you just created from the Symbols pop-up menu. Position the text as you see fit, and keep in mind that it has a bounding box around it so you can transform it any way you’d like.
