    Hi Jim,
    I had this bookmarked; might be close to what you mentioned.

    Thanks for the link..but that is not the one I was after...the one I was after was similar to the
    Warner bros log rotating text. Me just getting to old to remember where to find it LOL

    Yes that is the idea I am after. Now how is it accomplished but with a different object to replace the world? Pllease
    Thank you

    having read through Mike Sims' tutorial that Fred linked, I dare say it could be adapted for text provided that the text was rotating on the same axis as his globe; it would be a lot of work; I only understand in principle what he is saying, no way would I attempt it in xara 3D; that said it would only work for rotating the text, not rotating text around something I am pretty sure xara3D does not do that, but willing as ever to be proven wrong [ED IT: see my next post ]

    I wish to thank all who participated in this post. I had done it 5-7 years ago and since then have upgraded Windows Xara and
    hard rives seem to have lost the files.
    Getting on in years and memory is going for a shit...
    But thanks to all the help was greatly appreciated..
