How to make a text circle in Word? or Photoshop?

I have a project where I need to create text evenly spaced around a circle. I've looked in Word Help, and on the internet for suggestions but can't seem to find anything. I recall having done it before, either in Word or Adobe Photoshop, but haven't been able to find the proper commands.

As a last resort I can take each individual text piece and rotate it, but I think there is something that does what I want automatically.

Any suggestions?

Hmmm. I'd tried WordArt but only saw a half-circle selection. I'll have to look again. Thanks.

FWIW, in PS you finish editing your text and then select the warped text tool (next to the Palettes button, above). It opens an interactive window.

It used to be quite easy in CorelDRAW! too, but then, back in version 5, someone decided they had to change the interface, and messed the whole thing.

As Adobe did with Illustrator, too.

Manager: What shall we do in the next version?

Engineer: We've done everything anyone could possibly ever want.

Manager: Okay then, time for a new user interface.
