I have been working with a design that needs the text placement under the edge of a circle. It used to be when I did this I fit to path the a text box came up that let you adjust the text above the line or below the line and change the appearance of the text. I have researched the knowledge base and this seems to fall under text placement or text on curve toolbar, but I cannot find the answer to my problem. Hopefully someone can help.
As I posted on the Eline forum for you this morning, you should be able to right click on any open space on your upper menu area and put a checkmark in front of Property Bar.
If that doesn't work, for some reason, try re-starting Corel with the F8 key to restore factory defaults.
Let us know if you're still having problems.
