I'm creating a circle shape in Visio and adding a text field. Rather than
having the text field follow a straight line, I want to bend it to follow the
curvature of the circle shape. Example: lettering around the edge of a coin.
Is that possible? If so, how do I do it?

That is great - only one problem - how does one enter text??

On the demo page, press the "Generate Circular Text" button, it works
beautifully - however:
(a) bring the Circular Text Guide stencil shape on to a new drawing, and
there is no means of entering text;
(b) generate circular text on the demo page (fine), but copy/paste it on to
another page does not include the text - only the position guide.

What am I missing??

Thanks

Paddy

I think it best and only fair to ask on the forum from whence the shape came.
