1. Write some text using the CamBam text editor
2. Draw a polyline that you want the text to follow, make sure it's long enough
3. Select the text and the polyline
4. Goto Plugins -> Text On Polyline

On the version for CamBam 1.0, you will be asked to set the starting point of the text on the polyline.

Things to watch out for;

1. The line may need to be 'reversed'
2. On the version for CamBam 0.98, the text will start at the polyline 'start point'
You can insert a new point using this plugin
then change the start point.
3. If the polyline is closed you may need to change from CW to CCW
You can get the polyline information using this plugin
