Hi Cathie,
I'm using SBC 4.0 and trying to fill a unique shape (paw print) with text. Your directions are for 3.0, I'm guessing so it's a little different now. I was wondering if you could help me out? Thanks in Advance!

Barb, can you send me an email at it might be a little easier to respond until I do an update on 4.0

Barb, Fill in your text in a text box, go to format text and select Text Shape, select your shape and your text will fill the shape you chose.
