Illustrator questions... rounded rectangles & text on a path
Hi, I'm using Illustrator CS2 and I have a couple of questions...
1) I know how to create a rounded rectangle (rectangle with rounded corners). But when I resize it, the rounded corners get scaled (flattened/squeezed) too. How can I resize a rectangle while keeping the corners as perfect quarter-spheres?
2) I am making a simple road map with the roads as paths. I have the stroke set to 10px. I want to label the roads with street names. But when I put text on the road's path, it partially overlaps the edge of the stroke, and looks bad.
2a) How can I make it not do this - keep the text outside the stroke of the path?
2b) If I wanted to, and if the stroke were thick enough, could I put text *inside* the stroked path? Would I have to convert the path to a poly or something, draw a path over it and put text on that?
Thanks for any help you can provide....
