Better late than  never...

I'm trying to use Draw to make up some text to put around pictures in Writer. 

The help says: 
      "Adjust to contour - Adapts the text flow so that it matches the contours of
the selected drawing

For the life of me I can't figure how to connect the text to a shape. I have
a text box with text in it and a curve that I drew, but to get the text to
follow that curve seems beyond me. I've selected the shape and gone to the
menu Format/Text and selected adjust to contour as it says to do, but nothing

You'll get what you're looking if you add the Fontwork *toolbutton* (not
Fontwork Toolbar) by:

a. Tools > Customize.
b. In Toolbars page select the toolbar you want to add the button to
then click Add.
c. In the new dialog, select the Format category, Fontwork command.

Now you've got the right tool to get going.

1. draw a line or a shape.
2. enter the associated text to the line/shape, as usual
3. click the Fontwork button and enjoy!
