    Morning all...
    Is there a way in Omega 2.5 to have the text follow the curves exactly of an oval? I usually just use the distort feature but it's not working well for this particular oval :banghead:.

    Try "Fit Text To Path" under Tools

    Draw the oval then select the oval and the text, then go to Fit Text to Path

    OH...I know I've tried that before and it froze up my computer! I think I was doing something like not selecting the oval as well OR trying to do it when I already had the words distorted!

    THANKS GUYS!

    if you are putting text inside an oval, draw the oval then put an inline on the oval. do the inline the height of the letter plus the size of the margin you want. do the fit test to path on the outside of the inline oval, then delete the inline and it will look better than doing a fit to path to the real oval and trying to drop it into the shape.
