Default Word Art Rotate

I used word art to write a text in circular shape like the screenshot attached, I am looking to have straight characters in circular text something like, gravity of characters should be natural


Code:
        a
     b    e
   c        f
    d     h
       e

I am looking for help on how to do it through word

I am using Word on OSX

You may have to put each letter in a separate text box and group them. There is no easy way that I know about.

Thanks! Yes thought about it, but is there a way if I have multiple such word art blocks and still I could put them in circle ? (I know I could place word art like I did in question CODE section)

You could do this with postscript coding inside a PRINT field, but you'd need to know how to code the entire collection in postscript and the images wouldn't appear on-screen; only in the actual printout.

Otherwise, you could create a circle as a shape and arrange the shapes holding your letters around the circle, then delete the circle. Then group your shapes so you can move them as a block.

Not simple, but, for me, easier that postscript or PCL programming.

By the way, with just Word Art you can get a circle shape rather than an oval, however, your characters will still be oriented to the center of the circle rather than toward the line of the page.
