Why can’t I fit a line of text to a curve?

Unfortunately, Microsoft Office Visio does not support fitting a line of text to a curve. You can, however, create text that follows a curved path using WordArt in Office Word or Office PowerPoint. You can then copy and paste the WordArt into Visio.

Note: For information about how to create WordArt in Microsoft Office Word 2007 or Microsoft Office PowerPoint Viewer 2007, see Insert WordArt.

To copy and paste WordArt into your Visio diagram:

  1. Select the WordArt, and press Ctrl+C.

  2. In the Visio diagram, press Ctrl+V.
