Creating the Text (cont.)
Creating text only requires a single left mouse click in the top viewport. Anywhere will do, we'll shift it around later.
Select the text you've created, and apply two Modifiers - Extrude (1 unit), and WorldSpace PathDeform.
You may or may not have worked with modifiers, this is a simple exercise and will assume that you haven't, or haven't had extensive experience with modifiers.
A modifier is a command that MODIFIES our object or shape. It is set up in a cue, first to last. It is important to understand that the order in which you apply modifiers can affect the final result. Modifiers can (mostly) be altered, changed, added, removed, or their position in the stack moved up or down at any time, and most things can be animated as well.
Make sure the text creation tool is switched off by right mouse clicking in the top viewport (it's an easy thing to forget, soon you'll find you've got five or six unwanted text objects in the scene and can't figure out how the hell they got there).
