Text, curve, Silhouette tutorial, Silhouette Studio
If you're trying to make text curve around a circle in Silhouette Studio, you've come to the right spot.  Making text wrap or warp into is actually very easy.

Open Silhouette Studio and select the 'Draw an Ellipse' (Circle) tool on the left side.  In the work area draw a circle.

Next, select the font tool and write your text.

Double click the text so you get the bright green box around it.

On the left side of the box, a little circle with directional arrows will appear.  Grab it and drag it over to the circle you drew.   The text will wrap around the circle.

You can move the text to position it exactly where you want it on the circle by dragging that little circle with the arrows around the circle or inside of it to get the text to wrap around the inside of the circle.

Select the font > right click > convert to path. Now you can remove the circle and the text will stay in the exact shape.
