CS2 Text question - Adobe Illustrator Windows

When typing a paragraph and you get to the end of a line you hit return. The curser goes to the line under the line you just typed. Its as if the top line is anchored. What I want is to have the bottom line anchored. Where when you hit enter, the line you just typed shifts up. Is this at all possable? I would be supprised if it is, but I thought I would ask. Thanks, Deano...

    Dean,

    Is this at all possable?




    No, sorry, this is the long answer.

    Dean:

    Workaround for you:

    1. Draw a horizontal line a little longer than the width you want to type, and copy/paste it up a bunch of times:



    2. Go to Type>Threaded Text>Create:



    The result will look like this:



    Pretty self-explanatory:



    The nice thing is, that it breaks by itself like area type, and also once you have created the threaded text lines, you can reuse them and modify them as needed.

    But that doesn't sound like what Dean is asking for. It sounds like he wants text that flows from top to bottom, but is bottom-justified within the text block. That's what you'd get if hitting return made the lines already typed shift up and the cursor stay at the bottom of the text block.

    You're right, Teri. I guess I didn't pay enough attention to the original question, did I.

    20 lashes for me.
