I've been trying to figure out how to get my text to follow a path (like a circle) but I can't figure it out. Does Elements not have paths?

Hmmmm. I don't know. I'll have to play around with it and see. If Jacquie doens't spot this and have an answer, I'll see what I can find for you.

Found this. It was designed for elements 3.0, but it might work for you.

When you have a selection active in Elements 5.0, and you have one of the marquee tools selected from the toolbox, if you right click inside the selection, does it give you the option of "Make Work Path..."?

If it does, let me know and I'll give you detailed instructions. If it doesn't, I'll look on my Elements tonight and see.

Nope, no "make work path"

I downloaded the thing you posted Rachel.... trying it now thanks!

OK the cupcake kit does what I need, BUT it keeps quitting out of Elements while I'm typing what gives?

The feedback for that download says that it slows your computer down, and on a slower computer, it will cause Elements to crash. Make sure that you're not running anything else when you use it.

I checked it out, and you cannt use paths in Elements. I was able to do text in a circle, wave and various other shapes by using the warp text function. Click here to see a tutorial on using the warp text function to wrap text around a circle.
