(This is based on Pages version 4.3 / iWork '09.) It’s perfectly possible. When you create a new Pages document, you can choose between two different types: A Word Processing document or a Page Layout document. You are probably using a word processing document currently as this is the easiest type to start with: it has a fixed central text area on the page ...
you have to link the two paths (the inner and outer circles) to make it on continuous shape much like you would with stencil cut-outs.
A simple Merge should do the trick: Expand all text and strokes, then click Merge. Original Artwork (Outline view in the bottom window): Merged Artwork:
Intersect the paths using the steps below. Note that menu locations are for Illustrator 9. Steps Do not release the clipping mask. The text should already be converted to outlines and be one compound path. Make a duplicate of this path, using the layers panel. Window > Show Layers Move the duplicate path behind the line and out of the group. Hide the ...
The example you give is not an instance of text on a path, but rather regular point text being skewed. type your text, for example, 'EXHIB' in your example select it with the black arrow tool (V) if it isn't already choose the Shear tool, possibly 'hidden' under the Scale tool (S) click and drag into the desired shape or double-click the shear tool to ...
You could also opt to use a simpler aspect of the centerpiece to frame/partially frame the section where you want to put the text. That way the circle remains the centerpiece but the text is somewhat decorated without being too busy. Rather than deleting the dots from inside the frame you could tone them back by dropping the opacity though that may not be ...
Contrast/Color. If the text contrasts against the pattern well enough you may not need to pull any "tricks" or special appearance items. Text the color of the dots shouldn't present any real issue provided.... Size. The size of the text will play a large factor. If your text has strokes and counters the same, or relatively the same, size as the dots in the ...
I tried with Inkscape creating a text box duplicate it as background (bg) with bg I did change color grow (outset) added some transparency added some blur And this what it looks like: This is a sketch only, so the relation between size, transparency and blur of the text background are far from being perfect ;)
This is a bit of an "opinionated" question; wich is not ideal for GD. But I would suggest make the text wholly or partly transparent, but with a shadow only. You could get something like this (but with your pattern "shining" through.
Double-click the thumbnail icon for the text layer. This will highlight the text for editing. I think that's about as close to a shortcut as you'll get.
Only shortcut I know of is: Select your text layer Press T Click on the text object you want to edit
Yeah you need to enter edit mode to copy text as far as I know. However, if your purpose of copying text is to use it in another (or in the same) photoshop file, you could always duplicate the layer. Shortcut to duplicate the layer within the same Photshop file: Ctrl + J Also see Step 1 in this answer to quickly duplicate the layer into a new file. ...
I don't think that there is a shortcut to do this. You could possibly create a custom shortcut for it though. It definitely would be useful, as of now I just double click the text icon and hit Ctrl > Enter when I'm done to exit editing mode. Good luck!
Look for the path associated with the missing face. Add an anchor anywhere on that path. Use the Direct Selection Tool to select the created anchor to convert the anchor point to Smooth instead of the default Corner type.
