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