How to create fountain fills to curve with text/objects?

How to create fountain fills to curve with text/objects?

(OP)
Hello,

I was wondering if anyone had a quick answer on how to make a fountain fill (gradient) to curve with your text or object. If you arch text and just put a linear fill in it, the fill will remain straight, where as I'm looking for it to follow the arch of the text. Thanks for any help in advanced.

Try changing your fountain fill to Radial instead of LInear.  You may have to mannually mess with the verticle and horizontal offsets, as well as setting your Edgepad to get the effect you are looking for.  You can drag the Edgepad around with your mouse in the sample box to set it manually.

Alternatively, and especially if the path is not a simple curve, it may be easier to convert to curves, break apart (so every character is a separate object) and assign a separate angled linear fill to each of them.

You have to put this question to Corel Developpers, because there's no such feature on Corel. Sadly but true.

You could try the Interactive Mesh Tool to see if you can get what you are looking for.
