Text on Path in Affinity Designer

1- Open Affinity Designer.

2-  Create the design or shape you would like to add text to.

3- Select your design/shape.

4- Select the artistic text tool in the left toolbar. Hover the cursor over the shape line. you will see the cursor change to an A with a curvy line under it. When you see this click on the line. This will create your shape to a text path.

5- You can now type your text.

6- Another way to create a text path is to select your design/shape and go to Layer > convert to text path.

7-  When you write your text on the path you will see little orange triangles. These are there to stop your text going any further than you want it to. they can be adjusted.

8-  You can move these little triangles anywhere on your text path to get your text to start and stop where you would want it to.
