View Full Version : Words in a circle
02-10-2007, 09:27 AM
This may be a little off the wishblade topic but I'd like to know if anyone (and yeah that's you Shirley,haha) knows how to journel with the words going around in a circle.I see this in so many of my scrapbook magazines and have several places I could surely use this type of journeling ...I'm thinking that perhaps in Inkscape the printing on a path thingy may be where I would start but anyone got the time to share some intructions? Thanks in advance here....Dianne

Well, I know how to do it in Illustrator, but nothing else! :( Do some of you Inkscape users know how?

You would use the WORD ON A PATH tutorial in inkscape, and then, instead of making it into a cut item, you would keep it as text, and print it instead.

you can do woks in a cirle in Microsoft Word..I'd LOVE to know how to do words in a SPIRAL!!!! (hint, hint) :Plol

To do it on a spiral, you would have to create a spiral path, and then do a text to path in inkscape! Using the words on a path tutorial. If you just wanted to print the text, you can do that, or you can continue with the tutorial, and have your text cout out. In inkscape there used to be a spiral tool, i imagine it's still there!

I think the Inkscape tutorial for Words on a Path would work for a spiral too. Â*There is even a tool that will draw a perfect spiral...so you might try that.

See I knew that ya'll had all the answers I need! Thanks everyone. I had an idea that the Inkscape word on a path thing just might be the answer but wanted to be sure before I spent time working there. Thanks again for making Wishblading so awesome! When the hubby goes to work and the grands go to school, I'm going to grab a pepsi and see what I can do...one day, I'm going to be able to help someone else like ya'll have been so kind to do with me. Thanks again, Dianne

If you do find the time to figure it out and can explain it in SIMPLE terms, please let me know. I am a teacher with 3 kids and don't have any time to play, so would love to know how in laymen terms. I would be appreciate it very much.

Kim, I think you will find that you have to know the basics from the Inkscape tutorial before doing this, but here is a link to the thread that explains how to do it.
Hope this helps...
