Centre text along a path?

Recommended Posts

I've just discovered the Text Along a Path tool, which is great, as I'm trying to draw text along a curved line.


However, I'd like my text to show centred on the line, rather than starting from the leftmost point of the path? 


Is there a way to do this without trying to calculate the angle required and trimming the path to suit? I'm hopeful for a tick box somewhere!

Examples attached which hopefully make it a bit easier to understand what I'm trying to achieve.


I'd like the title text to be centred on the highlighted path, and to follow the curve.
