Type text along a path or around ellipse is ISODRAW?

Is there some trick or hidden option to type text in ISODraw 7.3 and have it follow along a path or ellipse? I have a drawing from a 3D model but I need to type the word "WIND" with directional arrows on the face of a control wheel that is turned. (The 3D model does not include the word on the part). The word needs to be curved around an ellipse to make it look right. I'd like to be able to do this from within ISODraw and not have to use Illustrator to accomplish this.

Any ideas? Thanks.

Hi there, check out the IsoDraw help and search for Wrapping Around a Cylinder

Here is help for text on a 2D Plane.

text on a 2-d isometric plane

Hope this Helps,

Thanks for your reply Byron,

Actually I was looking for the ability to do something more like the examples below:

First I drew this using PowerPoint and using its text effects...

TURN.PNG

Then I was able to 3D rotate effect within PowerPoint to get this...

TURN 3D.PNG

it would be so much easier if I could just do stuff like this from within ISODraw.

Thanks
