I am trying to make a text follow a curve on a circle. But whenever I click "set text to path" the text shows up written from right to left. I have tried just drawing a simple line (from left to right or frome right to left) always the text is written from right to left. I tried flipping horizontaly, vertically, turning the object, under no circumstances I can get the text to show up right. Can anybody help me ?
I found a useful tutorial video directly addressing your goal.
Considering that you've made it this far, the answer boils down to selecting the circle and using the horizontal mirror feature to flip the circle.
The video covers a few other features of text on path that makes the entire video worth viewing for Inkscape beginners.
