Learn about adding type and type on paths.
- [Instructor] In this movie we're going to add…some labels to the roads.…And it's generally accepted that they go inside of the road.…Of course, you can do labels in other places…to indicate directions off to other villages,…towns, cities, whatever,…as you might do at the end of some of these roads.…But the road names themselves generally sit…in the middle of the road.…And we're going to make that as painless as possible.…Let's lock off any other layers,…and in fact, we can turn off the sketch layer now…if we want to as well.…
And I'm going to raid that roads layer again.…So I'm just going to dip into that,…I'm going to unlock it, dive into roads itself,…so spin that open if we want to,…or we could just go ahead and get our Selection Tool.…Let's target this big road just here just for now.…And we'll do it one at a time,…well in fact, we'll just do one.…We can do the others at a later point.…So if we just copy that path up like so,…relock this layer, and this is another one…that really needs to go somewhere else…
