Help with text please

Hi I am trying to make text lie flat on a photo of a book using the Edit page. I have got it not too bad using Pitch and Yaw. But you will see (hopefully I will be able to attach a photo!) that the text at the bottom of the page is smaller than the top. It should really be the other way round. Is there a way to achieve this in the edit page? I am just using the ordinary text tool not the text+ one.

Thanks

Nigel

Jim

Thank you. For some reason when I tried that when I started on this a change of text size seemed to affect the whole block. I must have been doing something wrong as no problem now. I then animate the text away from the book page to fill the whole screen so that it is easily read; so now I have to also animate the text size while this happens which is not a problem and the whole thing looks much better.

Thanks again

Jim I thought that was the solution but it looks like I can't keyframe text size using the basic Text tool so I am going to have to use Text+ after all.
