How do I curve text?

One of my infamous easter cards could do with the Happy Easter greetings curving above and below he main subject.

BUT I have tried every single distort and render filter on the text and nowt works. The example below is as good as I got.

What do I need to do please, pretty please?

Hi Hamlet ...

Get hold of the text tool, type something in ... now look at the top of the screen. You will see a little letter T with a sort of arc under it ... its the warp text feature and its over on the far right hand side.

Try Arc ... that should do what you want

Thank you Wendy.

If I had a brain, I'd be dangerous.

Hi Hamlet ...

Beats me why they hide that feature under a little tiny icon .. I am sure that some people never find it

What version of elements are you using? Version 10 has type on a path that would work also. What Wendy suggests works fine if you don't have version 10.

arched text

Hello. I have Version 10. Arching the text over the top of the subject works fine but bowing text below the subject distorts the text. There must be a way to avoid that. I'm making round stickers.

For round stickers I think of using Text on a shape tool>Ellipse.
And introduction to the use of this tool can be found under this link.

When you want to use the Arc, use the horizontal type tool and then use Arc upper for the upper part of the sticker. Make a new line and then use Arc lower for the bottom part. You can tweak the sliders for an effect.

Hi nature nut, welcome aboard!

Just a little clarification about using the Text-on-shape tool.

The Ellipse option will give you an oval shape. As you are "making round stickers", you need to press the Shift key while you drag. This will allow you to draw a circle.

Beginning to grasp

Thanks so much Havoc and Sepiana! I'll never understand how people intuit these solutions in a program that has variations within applications within commands within tools...the possibilities seem infinite. I knew there had to be a way to get type into a bowl shape without distorting it but the steps remained a mystery to me. I'll let you know if I can follow the directions laid out in the video; meantime, thanks again for lending a hand.
