Creating a circled diagram
|Installation • Usage • PDF issues • Other|
A diagram in circle style, often useful for presentations. It uses combined and grouped polygons and other elements, duplicating, a lot of rotating and the Attach Text to Path function.
- Group the triangular and the rectangular, create three duplicates, rotate the duplicates so that they are pointinging to the four directions and place them above the ring.
- Now we add the text. Remember the copy of the small circle you made. Convert it to a bezier curve. Create a text frame with your text and use Item > Attach Text to Path. Move this text until it has its the correct position on the ring. You also have to play around with rotating until it fits perfectly.
- The text on the path is still editable – create three copies of the first text-on-path item, use the Story Editor to edit their content and move and rotate until the texts are all in the desired place above the ring.
