Type on a Path
1. Typing on a path can’t be any easier than it is on Illustrator. You can type on ANY TYPE OF PATH. I am using a circle as an example.
2. Choose the TYPE ON A PATH tool in your TYPE button of your tool bar.
3. Click right on the line of your path and a type cursor should appear right away.
4. Then just type away. Don’t worry about the line of your path, once you hit the line with your type on a path tool, it should just dissappear.
5. To move the type after you typed it into the path, you can move it by dragging the line beginning (labeled START on the screenshot) the type, or the end of the type (labeled END). Sometimes the lines will be jumbled together, you can usually tell which one is the START handle and END handle because both of them have white squares on it. Wherever the type ends is obviously the END handle.
6. The middle handle (labeled SIDE on the screenshot) is the handle you use to define if the type will wrap around the outside or the inside of the shape or path. Just drag the middle handle inwards of the circle for this example to wrap the type inside.
7. Now the TYPE AREA tool is another cool tool. It’s a good tool for page layout and making graphic design print projects.
8. After you select the tool, just simply select the path, and copy and paste your copy. That’s it! My result here.
