text along a curve

text along a curve

Is it possible to have text follow a curved line if so how?

RE: text along a curve

Maybe you would be better served on this one by using the Help menu. It seems like you need some basic know-how on some subjects.

RE: text along a curve

I'm just getting started with DS. I'll look through the help files again on creating text. Adding a note was simple enough but I didn't see anything about having the note follow a curve.

RE: text along a curve

I was thinking it was there, but now I'm not so sure. I recall it was an "Express Tools" add-on for AutoCAD several years ago, then I thought they included it in newer versions, so I thought DS would have it too.

RE: text along a curve

Yeah, it was 'atext' in AutoCAD.
No trace of it in DS.
Rhino has been able to do it beautifully for years.
