I like curves..

Is there any way gamesalad can bend the text, just a little?

A slight arc?

    We've been waiting a while for custom fonts... the ability to choose a different type face. I doubt that anything as complex as curved paths is in the works. You could, of course, import static images that include curved text, but it wouldn't be a dynamic display of characters.

    Thats a shame, the content of the text is always changing so i can't think of a work around.

    It was a long shot anyway, thank you..

    You could probably create your own system for it with individual actors for each letter that rotate and scale accordingly, but it's a lot of work and not a true "arc" with skewing.

    You could probably adapt my custom fonts template, but it would probably be a lot of work to do so. Certainly possible with fixed width fonts, though. Worth it? I really doubt it :D

    I would make the text an image, the way you want it and use that

    The text is dynamic, constantly changing & fixed spaces between the letters is also not going to work..

    So I guess I'm out of luck.

    Game you bend an image at all?

    If you are not using a fixed width font, you literally have no option other than using images then.

    You can't bend images, but you can pre-bend them in Photoshop.
