Adobe Illustrator — How to Add Type to a Path

Question

I am trying to do something in Illustrator and I can’t figure out how to make it happen. I want to make letters go in a semi-circle, and the help menu says to select Type -> Type on a Path -> and the option I want. My problem is that “Type on a Path” is grayed out.

Answer

I decided to start putting more video tutorials online this year. This is my first one. You can tell by the audio sounding like I recorded in a garbage can — but I really didn’t. But, I have to start somewhere! When I get better, maybe I’ll redo the video.

Here is a quick video on how to add type to a path in Adobe Illustrator.

If you’d like to have a question answered on my blog, please shoot me an email and I’ll try to help.
