Text on path issue (Text appears but not on the path)

Hi, Strange issue.

I create text, create a path, and hit “Text along Path” - and the text pops up somewhere scaled differently… see image with the path and the consequent text (which is nowhere near the path)…

Why like this?? :slight_smile:

Possibly because your text layer has several empty lines below the actual text. Otherwise show the whole UI (with the Layers list in particular.

Otherwise you can explore this: ofn-text-along-path


I tried it on a new project and everything works fine …

Maybe it’s because its a WebP file?

Compare this:

To this:

I strongly suspect that the path is mapped to the middle of the text box.
