Thread: Text in objects
View Single Post
This may sound like a bit of a straightforward question but it's got me stumped.

I have a shape and I want to position text boxes inside it. If I create the shape and then click inside it with the text tool, the object highlights and then wants me to enter text within the shape, rather than create a separate text field object. Not what I want to do. I've tried holding down any combination of modifier keys, using different layers etc etc.

At the moment I'm having to create a text field outside then drag it in hardly ideal. Another way is to click outside the object and drag, releasing inside the object to create a text entry point there. This obviously wouldn't work too well if there were a shape behind that...

So how do I do it? There must be a way... surely...

Many thanks!
