I am trying to create a logo with text around the arc of the donut shape, very much like the initial logo template. I thought I could just sub my text in that one and add my own center image. However, when you start with that logo the first part of the text is "blocked" out by something. I can't figure that out.
Starting from scratch, How does one get the text within the arc? The manual is really not very helpful on this. I guess I need and Art Text for Dummies book.
Help!

Hi cashbridge,

...the first part of the text is "blocked" out by something

Templates are usually created out of several layered objects. Maybe you have some graphics in front of the text. I can give you more details only if you tell me which template you modify.

To make text go around a circle, you cat use the transformation tools (View > Geometry Panel): Bow, Ring or Semi-Ring.

A couple examples

I was using the Underground House Logo with the train in the center. When I separated the layers, there was something square in front of the text layer.
Thanks.

The original template has four layers: two circles, the train icon ant text. Maybe you have added another layer accidentally. Try to delete it or move aside.

You can see the list of all layers in the Layers panel. Press Cmd-L to open it.

I have no idea how you guys are curving the text. I see no options to do so.

How did you do that? This is driving me nuts!

Thank

You need to click on Geometry tab on a right side of Art Text window and play with sliders for Ring and Semi-Ring transformations.
