I see that in an older version of Libre Office Writer that you could arch writing around a curve quite easily, but on my newer version it doesn't show the arching options? I am looking under TextBox.... Format....object.....fontwork. Any ideas would be fantastic.

  • Draw with curve tool you need (curve, freeform line...),
  • Double clic and type the text,
  • Format▸Text Box and Shape▸FontWork (opens the dialog) (menu Format▸Object▸Fontwork in previous versions)
  • Choose you effects
