I need a continuous text in a shape that has been built with a shape builder tool (Let's say doughnut shape). I need the text to continuously flow in the "doughnut", and leave the inside circle empty. Filling the ellipse with text and then cutting out the center text is not an option. As I said, the text has to be continuous.
As of right now, when I create a shape and click on the Area Type tool I get a message that says " you must click on a non-compound, non-masking path to create text inside a path".
Any solutions would be greatly appreciated!
