Do you want to know how to curve text in Cricut Design Space? If yes, in this blog, we will teach you how to do it on your Windows, Mac, Android, and iOS device.

But before getting started with Cricut curving text, you need to keep a few things in mind.

So, without further delay, let’s get straight to the point. 

Things to Remember

There are a few points that you have to always keep in mind while following the process. Here are the important points:

  • You can use the “Ungroup to Lines” tool or insert specific text boxes for each and every line to place the lines of text into particular text boxes. Then separately, curve each line. If there are many types of lines of text present under the same text box, then the curve tool will not enable it.
  • Your curved text stays fully editable unless flattened or welded. You can resume setting up the letter rotating, spacing, and editing the actual text. You can also change the style and font type after curving the text.
  • Now, during this time, you will not be able to open projects having curved text on an iOS device. Therefore, if your text has been isolated, sliced, ungrouped, or welded, it is working as an image, not as a text box, and now the project can be opened.
  • If you own an Android device, the projects having curved text will be open. But if you try to update the curved text, it will remove the curve.

Tips & Tricks for Curve Text Tool

There are a few tricks & tips that you need to know before starting the process of how to curve text in Cricut. Here are the tips and tricks:

  • If you are a new operator or it’s your first project, when you go to the Design Space, the interface is open on your screen in three sections. The editing space is in the middle, the layers panel is on the right side, and the toolbar panel is on the left.
  • The Curved text is fully editable (unless flattened, welded, ungrouped, or regrouped). You should curve the text and then adjust letter spacing, change for style/type, rotate, edit, etc.
  • The Curved text tool only works with single lines of text. If you need to curve various lines, you will need to enter them, or you can utilize the ungroup to lines tools, specifically the lines which are in their own text boxes.
