I seem to remember being able to construct a 3d text line and have it form up along a winding path in earlier versions of LW... I now need to do this to a 2 word product name... I will be morphing the waving bent version into the straight version... Now I have done it via a tedious application of the bend tool in modeler but I am thinking... there must be a "text on a path" shortcut somewhere... Somebody please show/tell me how stupid I am being today hehe...

but you could do the text on path in illustrator and then export to lw.

Or freehand, just convert it to curves, save it as an .eps and extrude it in modlahhh.

Thanks All...

Thought I was losin it... So there really isn't a simple text on a path option in LW... Well maybe there will be one day... Seems like a natural for a feature... Also seems like it would be one of the less difficult things to code given the work already done on rail and path extrude.
