    It's taken me a while to get use to the fact that younger people prefer text, and that a voice call is like showing up on their door step unannounced. I feel fortunate to be old enough to know when voice...

    I'm not a big fan of telephone calls with clients for all the reasons Paranoir mentioned. Even so, many people prefer calling, so I have a phone and I make adjustments to accommodate their preferences....

    What everyone seems to be dancing around here is the fact that if you plan to deal with high end clients for 5 or 6 figure contracts, you better plan on answering the phone when a client calls....

  • write around circle

    OK. i am sure there is a simple solution to this. i am trying to write text along the path of a closed circle. i can put the text on the inside or outside and i understand the starting and end points and center point and such. the thing i cant figure out how to do is write along the bottom of the circle with the text still in its proper verticle position. i dont want it upside down to to speak. is this possible with the text on path tool...or should i type out the text and ben/shape it. many thanks!

    I've always had to make two circles to do that. Get your top text set up, then create the second circle and click it at the bottom with the text path tool. Use the arrow tool to flip the text up and move the center point to where you want it to be.

          It will technically be on the inside of a circle. Make your second circle bigger so that it looks like it's on the outside of the circle the top text is on.

            Another way to do this is by using Baseline shift to movve the inside text "down" until it is on the outside of the circle.

              I'm not sure what application you're using but can you set the bottom text to align to the "ascender" instead of baseline?

              I've used the above mentioned method lately since I'm hard pressed to remember a non-rush-job (Do they exist? ) but I do remember one time I had a non-exact oval image that I was wrapping type around and I didn't want to expand one of the paths so I duplicated the path in place (I use "duplicate" as a generic statement here as I don't know what application I was in. It would be either InDesign or Illustrator though) and set the bottom text path to align to the ascender of the text.

                alingment

                once you have made a bigger circle (increase by font height) align on both vertical and horizontal axes
