Qcad text over a circle

Post by Corkery24 » Fri Jan 24, 2020 7:30 pm

I'm trying to make a sign with letters over it. The sign is oval shaped. I can't remember but how do you get text to contour circles or ovals? Tha is a bunch!

You can use the rotate tool to rotate a letter or text around a radius. An Oval is different because it is a splined radius. Each letter must be rotated individually. It can be done using the text box and using the angle option in the text box.
