Very Very NICE !!!!!!
I’m gonee use it TODAY !!
nice and coool thanks for it
How can I make type on a shape without it changing the shapes properties? I applied a gradient mesh to an elliptical shape, then tried to do some type on a path only to have my mesh, stroke, and fill change. What am I doing wrong? Thanks.
its great, i really learn a lot in just a couple of minute lessening to it .. thanks
tooooooo grade very good
Thank you all. Glad you enjoyed it.
@ Geoff West: You’re not doing anything wrong. As soon a you change the object to a Type on a Path object, it will lose all of its applied Appearance. You should be able to reapply Attributes such as Fills and Strokes.
first let me say it is a cool way of learning, coz i have used it and now i can do a lot with it. thou before the session was complete it stoped. please check to confirm that immediately after the types of paths on the path tool it just stops!
Good presentation – nice skill builder – thank you!
Loved this tutorial, it covered the type on a path tool completly and clearly. It cleared up all that I could not figure out.

hi is there any way to type a text in a circle in different ways from the same point
In Illustrator CS5, is there any parallel to InDesign’s ability to change a path mistakenly clicked on with the type on a path tool and thus given the type on a path attribute, to UNASSIGNED or GRAPHIC?
