    Incomprehensible title.

    I want to make this:

    Is there any tool to align all the ideas up, around the central icon? Any template available?

    1-Text Wrap?
    2 - If not try to draw a shape and put the text around it. the text will follow the shape of the object as you type
    3 - text box? if you use this, give the texts different sizes and different oppasity (it will give a sense of depth of field)
    to make them move or go around, play a bit with the text animation feature

    Thanks for all your suggestions.

    I will probably do it the manual hard way, and add text boxes and appropriate transparencies.

    Wordle is a very interesting site, but it created TAG clouds (ie the most commonly repeated words in a block of text).
