Text in a circle
« on: May 25, 2011, 09:29:50 AM »
How to arch, arc or put text on or in a circle is a common question and I've tried to provide a step-by-step process in this post...
http://thealliancetrader.blogspot.com/2011/05/text-on-circle-in-inkscape.html

however, if you have a basic understanding of how to get to this step, all you have to do is
select the circle only and grab the middle handle and pull it down to reverse the text.

You can use the alt key and the right and left arrow keys to add or decrease the space between the letters...
for more details check my blog link...



You can create more of an oval if you prefer.
