One question remains: Is there a way to put the
text on a free form line or only on the shapes the Fontwork Button dialog box

Yes, of course. Just draw a line by hand and associate (enter) the text
you want. While it is selected, call the Fontwork tool. There, do *not*
use the upper rounded shapes. Instead, use directly one of the four
tools just below to setup the text along the line you drew.
You should achieve what you're looking for.


Tried that and somehow I'm missing something important. I draw a line using
the "Freeform Line" tool from the Draw toolbar. I then use the text tool from
the Draw toolbar to enter text. When I enter the text the Fontwork window
opens. I then choose one of the 4 tools you suggest and the text follows the
contour of the text box. The line is totally ignored. If I select the line
the Fontworks tool is grayed out and unavailable.

This takes me back to the same problem as I had initially, how do I get the
text to be associated with the line. Writer will not let me select both the
text box and the line at the same time. Could you give me a detailed step by
step what works on your system? Thanks.
