Chapter 13. Getting Creative with Type > Creating and Modifying Text on a Path

Creating and Modifying Text on a Path

Using the type options, you can enter type that flows along the edge of a work path created by the Pen or Shape tool. When you enter type along a path, it flows in the direction in which anchor points were added to the path. For example, creating horizontal type on a path create type that are perpendicular to the baseline, and creating vertical type on a path creates type parallel to the baseline. Once the type is created, selecting the Direct Selection tool allows you to reshape the path, and the type will change to fit the new form of the path.
