Corel 11, Text upside down in circle

Corel 11, Text upside down in circle

Corel 11, Text upside down in circle

Hi, i can not figure out how to get text in the bottom of a circle to read right to left, right-side up.

I've got the text on the path.. can move it to the bottom of the circle.. but can NOT figure out how to make it readable there.

Can someone please help me.. with VERY explisit instuctions starting with the text already being set to the path?

RE: Corel 11, Text upside down in circle

On the Properties Bar is a double "A" one right side up and one up side down. Click on it then change the distance from path. You should be all set.

Thanks! I meant to post to this earlier and forgot..

I don't have a Double A on mine.. which is corel draw 11.. but the last icon on that line, i guess the property bar? past where i can raise or lower the text or move it around the circle.. is another small icon.. which on mouseover says it's "pace on the other side" .. THAT DID IT!  WHOOOOT!!!!!!!!!

Hi there.

Here's what yo have to do:

(Considering you've made already the Fit text to path option, the text will apear in the upper side of the circle path)

1. In the 3rd drop down option list, you choose the 3rd option.

2. Click the right most option button (in the same line as the other fit to text options).

3. You can change the distance to path by changing the value in the 4th option box. Negative values will put the text away from the center, positive values will tighten the text to the center.

Hope this is an explicite help.
