Hello,

 

I am creating a logo and I cannot seem to get the type on path to work the way I intend to. I want the bottom text "CYCLES" to be flipped right side up and follow the circular shape so that it is more readable. How can I do this?

You need to have 2 paths for the text. One for the top and one for the bottom text

I had two paths at one point. I still could not figure out how to flip the type. Reflect does not resolve my issue either.

Reflect does do what?

You will also need to align the text on the path. Open the Path text options and also set baseline adjustment.

For the bottom text:

menu: Type --> Path Text --> Path Text Options

 

Pathtext_mirror_01.png

 

choose:

  • Preview
  • Mirror
  • align to the Middle

Done

It can be done by using just one path, but I'm pretty sure that some people will not like this approach:

Just a bit fun to play with.
