John SchneiderPlacing text above a path

What happens is that when I set my text to a line, it always appears below the line and never above it. The "Reverse Path" function seems to do the trick but it leaves the text also appearing in reverse.

So how do I put my text above the path I created using the pen tool?

Can you post screen grab of your text and the text options, cause no matter what I do, I can't get my text to be reversed.

Also, if the text is just below your path line, you could just add a position animator, and adjust the Y position.
