Hi, I'm trying to put text at the bottom of a circle using PE15, as per Put Text On The Bottom Of A Circle With Photoshop Elements . However, there does not appear to be a 'Shape Selection Tool' among my tools. Am I missing something or is it not supplied with this version? If it is not included, what versions have it? Is there any other way of getting the text 'right reading up' at the bottom of a circle? Regards Mike

If you select one of the Shape Tools (keyboard shortcut U), click on Tool Options you should see an Arrow grouped with the other Shape Tools in tool options.

That's the Shape Selection Tool.

Thank you Jeff. That's great. I could't understand why there was no shape tool in my side bar and didn't realise that I had to activate it from the shape selection box.
