I joined the forum specifically looking how to make text into a shape. I know it can be done in Inkscape, but I bought this because it is more user friendly. I am hoping it can be done here too. I'm not "grasping" the Inkscape tutorial either. :roll: I hope someone can help me. Im trying to write team names in a football shape right now. THANKS IN ADVANCE!

If the answer is no, then find a link or draw a picture or something that will define what it is you're hoping to create. Maybe we can help! :)

Barrel Distortion and/or Bulge are the two functions that might be able to do this particular shape. Have a look at my examples in Sections 9.14 and 9.15 of this user manual:
