Do you want the text to stay within a specific ray or follow the edge of the ray?

To get the text to stay within a certain shape, Shalae wrote this tutorial on it several years ago.

Since PSE doesn't do type paths, I can't give you any directions for creating them in CS. So I would recommend these: ScrapSimple Type Path s: Summer
(see the sun shaped one)

Shalae's tutorial is perfect! If you want your text to follow your path, instead of clicking inside the shape as Shalae does in the tutorial, you click on the path with your texttool choosen. Your text will now follow the form you have created.
If you use a shape instead you don't even have to make the path, just click on the shape with your pentool and the path is made for you.

Good luck!

I don't know if your software can create type paths, but you could just type and try to fit your text in line by line by changing the size and using the warp tool.

Hope that helps. Post again and let us know if you were able to accomplish what you wanted. I'd love to see what you did.
