Baseline Shift Amount

Here’s a pretty good guideline when you’re applying a baseline shift to text on the bottom of a circle. With most fonts, simply enter a value in the Character palette’s Set the Baseline Shift field that’s approximately two-thirds of the font size. Highlight your text with the Type tool (T), highlight the Set the Baseline Shift field in the Character palette, enter minus (–) to move the text down, and enter the value that is two-thirds of the font size. (Remember to deselect the type and reset the Character palette’s Set the Baseline Shift field back to zero when you’re done, or else when you create new type, it will apply your last-used baseline shift setting.)
