Text Profile question - setting up the letters around the circle

Phenom

Hi Edgers,

 

I am facing difficulty to properly set up the text around the circle.

This function is annoying me, why there is no chance to rotate the profile manually ? I do not know.

 

Can you please help me to find this functionality ?

 

I have attached a few screenshots.

 

I need to set up a Clock Letters around the circle where the XII letter needs to be in 12 o Clock position.

 

thank you

Hi @arekkul

 

 

 

I think, You must define every number for itself and not as a single text line.

The distance between different letters is also differently and You will not be able to place every number to the right position when using spaces betwenn letters.

 

So I would draw a small piece of circle at the 12 position and rotate this within Your sketch by 30 degrees and 11 times

 

Then You can use those middle points (take care for middle point position in text too) to place the I, II, III, IV and so on, but each of them extra

 

 

 

I have done similar now nearly 10 years ago.

Hi @arekkul

 

 

 

another approach also can be, to create a single number and then rotate it by nx30 degrees.

Either via direct edit or as sync

Hi Wolfgang @hawcad,

 

thank you.

I know your method and it works, but I wanted to use Text Profile as it is quicker to create, but DIFFICULT to adjust, unfortunatelly.

 

anyway, very thank you for reply,

 

Regards,
