I want to put a saying inside a shape and I'm having trouble. Help!

I'm not having much luck - I'm taking an outline of Wales (off google images) and inserting just 6 words - but the software is putting a load of these words jumbled up into the actual outline and NOT in the shape IYKWIM.

Getting frustrated!

Just a thought, have you looked at the FAQ at the bottom of the home page?

Your using the wrong tool, Tagxedo takes a block of text and transforms it so the words used most often are bigger.

You need a drawing program like LibreOffice Draw or MS Draw.

Import the drawing and use the drawing programs text tool to insert the text

cdtay thanks loads for taking the time to do that. I'll have a play around with it.

My aim is to take a Welsh saying and fit it into the shape of Wales. I wonder - would I have to take each letter and alter the size and don't to make it fit?

Send me the Welsh phrase and I will have a go.

If you have a copy of MS Word ask its help about Word Art - I think that will fit what you want to do.

I've PM'd you.

Is this sort of what you want? If you can't extract it from here PM me with an email address and I will send you the file
