    Default Wrapping text blocks

    I'd love the ability to wrap a text block around an object, or to be able to shape a block of text into a non-rectangular shape.

    Anything would help! Ideally I'd like to be able to wrap text around another object on the page, or fit it inside the outlines of another object, but I'll start with circles and triangles if you got em!

    I agree, this would be a nice function. I can do it myself in other programs but its always nice to be able to work dynamically. I have previously mentioned also that Full Justification would be lovely for journal text.

    At the moment, I type and adjust my text one line at a time. . . So I agree, a text wrapping feature would be a brilliant addition to SBM!!!

    SBM version 2 does have the ribbon text, if that's what you are wanting... are you wanting to be able to do things like the example layout below where I made the text in a wavy ribbon around the edges of the page? The ribbon text allows you to do this around any obect on your page, whatever you want to do! It's awesome!

    Be good to your favorite designer (I used to be one!) by LETTING THEM KNOW how much you appreciate their work!

    No, I want to be able to have a block of text that can be shapes other than a rectangle. For example, to fit inside a circle frame or to be angled to butt up against a photo that is placed at an angle.

    Text can be centred to fit inside a circle . . . I was referring to the more difficult / odd shapes, like in my example below. In cases like this I had to do it line by line. . .



    Another thing I'd like to draw Max Designer's attention to, is that Max tends to close down/crash when I fiddle too much with my textboxes (like in these situations when I need them to fit a shape) . . . It would be brilliant if they could sort that out too!!

    Thanks

    I too, would LOVE to be able to do Text shapes, instead of having to go to PSE and do it and then import it.. That would be GREAT!
