How do I type in a circle?

It's a lot easier than you think to type text on a path. Most word-processing programs have click-by-click solutions for molding text along wavy lines or around shapes. Instructions vary by program, so follow the tutorial included with your software for how-to information.

1. In Microsoft Word, open a new document and select the Drawing toolbar from the View menu.

2. Click on the WordArt icon (blue slanted letter "A") and click OK to select the default text option. Type your text in the window, select your font and size, and click OK. Select the text with your mouse to bring up the WordArt toolbar.

3. Select the WordArt Shape icon from the toolbar and choose the full circle option. Adjust the size and shape by clicking and dragging on the edges.
