Text Shifting

How do I Arch, or angle text in photoline? Any ideas. I can do everything else but can't figure out simple text arching and horizontal movement. Thanks.

I'm not sure what kind of arching you mean.

For simple rotating or shearing you need the layer tool, that's the black arrow. That tool is easiest selected when you press escape, and escape again to return to your previous tool.

To rotate or shear you grab the layer near the corners or edges.
You can find outline warp in the effects menu.
Text can also follow a vector. That's easiest when you create the vector first and then create the text layer when pointing at the line of the vector.

I attached a pld in the zip.
