I hope this helps

I have CS4 and all I have to do is select the shape tool but make sure I have selected the shape path icon on the top and then select the text tool and click anywhere inside the shape path. You can also go along the edge of the shape and type in a line around the shape. I hope this makes sense and helps. Let em know if you need more and I can send you some screen shots.

Thanks Laurie, now I get it, just tried it, I could made textpaths but didnt managed to type inside a shape, it was almost the same . But what if for example you have a mickey head shape is it possible to turn the mickeyhead into a shape path? I mean is it possible to turn any shape (not from the shape tool) into a shape path?
for your help!!!
