# Text along Path

I am having tremenous difficulty getting my text along a path to be visible in my saved document. I am using version 2.6.11. I go to paths>click along area for my path>go to text>select text specifics (color, size, font, etc.)>click on image and type in the text box>select use fonts box>close text box>hit text along path button. The text populates along the path but I don't see it in the final saved document. I tried hitting the eye icon, path to selection but nothing seems to work. I'm trying to put text within a picture. Please, please, please, if you can help me out I'd greatly appreciate it.

### You can't actually have text

You can't actually have text on path. When you do this, the text is converted to a path and then placed on the path so, you either need to fill your path with your background color, or stroke the path (for outline). :)
