Title: Changing size of curved text
Post by: Stufak on February 12, 2019, 07:07:57 pm
I am new to Scribus and am having issues using text that has been fit to a curve. After changing the height of the text on the curves, I go to the print preview screen and receive a text overflow error. Ignoring the errors, the resulting preview has reverted my text to its original height. I assume that this is a bounding box issue, but I can't figure out how to change the size of the bounds without increasing the size of my circles.

Any idea of how to make this work?
Thanks

I found a workaround by increasing the font size and decreasing text width proportional to what I had in my original version. Seems to have done the trick.

Select the WordArt text or letters to change. The Drawing Tools Format tab appears.
To create a curved effect, on the Drawing Tools Format tab, click Text Effects >Transform and pick the one you want.
Click outside of your text box to see the effect.
