I cant get I-beam with a dotted circle around it on CS2
I'm trying to fill a shape with text. I have done this before so I know CS2 is capable of it but for some reason I can't get it to work. I used the pen tool and drew my shape and closed the path. When I hover the cursor over the line i can get the I-beam with a dotted squiggly line. But when i move the cursor inside the shape it wont give me the I-beam with a dotted circle around it just the I-beam with a dotted square around it. I would greatly appreciate anyone's help to get this option back!!
When you drew your path did you create a 'Shape layer' or 'Paths layer'? If you created a shape layer text on a path will not work. This link explains the difference between shape and path layers.
