custom text justification

Hi there,

Any thoughts on how to justify text along a custom curve, instead of using Quark? Is there a way to use paths and type to do this?

Thanks!

Todd

Both PS and Ai do this (newer versions)

Look up text on path

I don't want the text to follow a path. I want the text to justify along a path.

Sounds like you want a Text Wrap.

- click and drag with the type tool to make your text box
- in the Paragraph palette, turn on Full Justification
- select the path you want the text to justfiy to, go to Object > Text Wrap > Make Text Wrap
- you'll get a dialog box where you can set the width of the buffer around the object.

Assumed you were setting type in Illustrator, to which the above instructions apply.

I don't know of a way to do that in Photoshop.
