  • Is is possible to get text to follow a path? Or a circle? I just can't find a thing about this. I'm using 9.6

    add an "align to spline" tag to object and drop the spline in the "spline path" field

    and animation the "position" setting to make the text/object move along spline

  • Thanks for the tips, haven't got MoGraph so I'll try the spline thingy.

    Just trying to reproduce a weight lifting plate, and want the text running around a circle. I'm importing the object from Illustrator at the moment but I'd like to be able to edit it easier.

    here is a sample file.

    i also turned on "Tangential" in the "align to spline" tag

    so the text stays straight on the spline
