Creating vertical text

printer friendly

Text is created horizontally (left to right) when using the Text cursor tool. However, it can be adjusted to force each letter onto an individual line in order to create vertical text.

In order to create vertical text you may do the following:

  1. Open Silhouette Studio®
  2. Go to the Text cursor tool
  3. Create your text in the desired font style
  4. While still in the text edit mode (with the green box around the text), click on the black bar to the right of the text and drag it to the left
  5. If there are any lines showing two letters on the same line, place your cursor in front of the second letter on this line and press the Enter key on your keyboard
  6. In the Text Style settings, select the Center option

 This will have your text set on a vertical path.
