Pixelmator Pro - STILL no way to curve text along a path?!

What features would you like to see in Pixelmator Pro?

Hi!


I was really excited to see that Pixelmator Pro had launched. I was ready to buy it instantly. I downloaded the free trial, and the first thing I tried to do was curve text along a path.


You can't do it. Still.


That's not Pro.


This has been a requested feature in the main app for years! I can't believe a "Pro" version of Pixelmator has been released that still isn't able to do this basic task.


I decided not to buy Pixelmator Pro because of this. I can't justify spending more money on a "Pro" app that doesn't have a complete basic feature set.

We would have loved to completely redesign the Type tool in Pixelmator Pro 1.0 to make this possible, but that's one of the things we're saving for a major update in the future. It's definitely a more than reasonable request, though.

YES I've wanted to do this as well and can't believe it's not a feature.

Curving text was usable with evil Microsoft Publisher 9 / 12 years ago, but I prefer to use Pixelmaster, Do catch up......Please !

SERIOUSLY!?!!!?? WAY back before this was released, I pushed on this and the Pixelmator team sent me a note insinuating that text on a curve was going to be in the new version. There was even an email making it sound like that would be possible. I've been using Pixelmator for years and in place of PS. I used to recommend Pixelmator. Since it's just being maintained, I haven't because I feel like it's on the verge of deprecated. I absolutely cannot recommend Pixelmator Pro or upgrade to it myself without having text on a curve. $30 for Pixelmator was a fair price for what I do. $60 would be a stretch with Text on a Curve. You may have lots of great new tools for artists, but that's not my use. So, the price is out of line.

The pressure mounts...

(P.S. I've been doing my part, bugging the devs incessantly and I think they're going to break soon. )

Thanks for adding clipping masks 👍🏼 but write on a line is really a important pro feature. Is there any news in terms of a possible release date?

It's not something that we're actively working on, so the best case scenario would be the end of this year. But that's just a guess and would happen only if it's one of the first things we start doing after the current round of improvements (Denoise and Clarity adjustments, full Transform command, Photos extension, and some other great features that we feel are more important than typing on a path). Having said that, I do think that after these features are finished, circular text might be worth bringing to Pixelmator Pro...

Thank you Andrius. I believe that the feature you mentioned are more important, too. It's great to get some clarity and still be excited.
