  1. Dear VW friends, I have been trying and failing at creating extruded text along a Helix Spiral, the text always seems to skew out and leave the path. I tried playing around with the rotation around path but it's still turning out wonky... My goal is to have the text extrude flat along the path so that it can placed on the outside of a cilinder. I feel its because the path is rotating around itself slightly but can't figure out how to avoid this problem any thoughts? I kept at it and I think I found a work around that gave me the result I needed.... The result is visually correct but it's hard to get it done in exact dimensions, so it took me 4 tries to get it close to the size I needed... So maybe there is still a better way to approach this but I did it as follows: 1. In top view I created a line (path) at an angle (the angle that worked for me was 7.5 degrees) 2. I used the text along path tool to extrude the text along the line (scaling height and width to match the length of the path) 3. Using a 3d locus I marked the center of the "text along path" object 4. In front view I then used the Deform tool to bend to object into a helix spiral using the 3D locus as starting point ( deforming 270 degrees was about the right amount for me) I will post images of my process below... I still think it should be possible using the 'text along path" tool directly with a helix spiral path but just couldn't figure it out... Thank you for your help! p.s. I posted this earlier in the general forum not realizing it should probably have been here in the modeling thread.

  3. Hi all - I have created a document that uses Text Along Path, to have the text wrap around this edge of a circle. This all looks good. I have changed the text a few times with no issues. However, now, when I try to change the wording I RightClick on the text and choose Edit Profile I get the edit window BUT the text appears only for a half second then disappears totally - BUT the Object info palette goes blank! ... I have Show/Snap/Modify Others turned on for classes and layers, so I don't think it is a visibility issue. Now, one thing it MIGHT be is that I have copied and pasted this Text Along Path object... could it not like to work on copies? I don't think that could be it because it HAS worked with some copies before. If I recreate the file from scratch it works and will work on copies but at some point along the way it just stops allowing me to edit this text What am I missing? Thanks in advance for your help, Dave I am using VW2017, Spotlight on PC in Windows10
