Hi everyone,

I'm trying to write some text on the path of another piece of text and I can't figure out how to do it. I've written my first piece of text "6" in Illustrator and Created Outlines but when I try to use the Text on Path tool it's not working.

Any ideas? I want it to look like this...

Thanks. :)

Hi

Many programs allow you to reset to default settings. It's always worth a try, if some functions aren't working.

If you are following the correct steps and the program is still playing up, if you don't have some kind of 'Detect and Repair' option within the program, (also check for a troubleshooting section, in the help file), uninstalling and reinstalling may solve the problem.

This also assumes that your system is not infected. Have to say that, unfortunately, these days.

[ In some Graphics programs you can use the pen tool to draw a line that you want text on.
Then use the text tool (as opposed to a 'Text on Path' tool) and click on the line, then type your text.

I don't think it's a case of Adobe Illustrator playing up. I don't even know if what I'm trying to do is possible on Illustrator. Thanks for the help though.
