Add Circular Text to Target Diagrams (any Shape) in PowerPoint 2010 for Windows

Created: Wednesday, February 15, 2012, posted by Geetesh Bajaj at 5:50 am



Received a question from an Indezine reader: Can you help me? I have built a target diagram using your tutorial (Thank You for this). However, I now am trying to write text within each of the target rings. Is it possible to shape the text to circular text?

Sure you can! Follow these steps:

  1. Select the circle for which you want to add circular text. Type some text — by default the text is inserted right at the middle of the circle as shown in the Figure below.
  2. With the circle still selected, access the Drawing Tools Format tab of the Ribbon. In the WordArt Styles group, locate the Text Effects button and click it to bring up a drop-down gallery. In this gallery, choose the Transform option, as shown in the Figure below.

    This opens a sub-gallery — within the Follow Path category, choose the top left option, as shown in the Figure above.

  3. Your text will not be in a circular style just below the top edge of your circle, as shown in the Figure below.
