Arc Lower Text Effect???

Recommended Posts

So I have searched and searched and for some reason I can't find how to easily and effectively do this Arch Text Effect, known in Adobe as Arc Lower. Lol for some reason doing this is not as easy in PDN or Inkscape.

Does anyone have any secret knowledge on how to effectively accomplish this? And I'd love for it to be perfectly symmetrical and not a bootleg method like struggling with the liquify or smudge tool, lol.

Various ways - none perfect sadly, these are useful though.

Any way of distorting text tends to mess with the antialiasing so I would work big and resize smaller later. Good luck.
