How do you create multiline text along a curve?

I'm using the Type On Path tool for single-line text, but is there a way to make the text multiline?

Draw two paths.

Select both paths, choose Type > Threaded Text > Create.

Add the text to the paths.

  • You have to select both lines and choose Type > Threaded Text > Create in order for the text to flow between lines.

In illustrator CC 2015 you can also click the box with the little + in it and click on another path to thread text from path to path.
