Do you mean like putting text on a hand? If so, just add it to the image of the hand before you upload it. If you mean active text like digital time, i think you could just apply the hand rotation code to the digital time.

Hi Rator yes thatâ€™s what I meant active text like digital time Ect ok ty Iâ€™ll give that I try

Good luck and no problem!

Iâ€™m sure that if that doesnâ€™t work that thereâ€™s a more complex way to do it, and maybe another, more experienced designer could help you out with that code.

Does anyone have a code for the writing to spin around or follow an object that you put it on ??

Iâ€™m not exactly sure what type of spinning you mean, but maybe you could create the text on a transparent layer and use a rotation formula.
Rotating picture or if thatâ€™s not what you mean, maybe a circular motion:

There are websites that will create â€śspinningâ€ť text, but since the images you publish for Facer should be your own work, I wouldnâ€™t recommend using one of those.

For finding hands and faces, you can create them using a app like PhotoShop or one of the free ones. There are several discussions in the community about that.

Can you share the face youâ€™re working on and maybe we can see how to fix it?

A couple of things re the hands â€¦

First of all make sure that the hand image is centred, ie. Xpos = 160, Ypos = 160

Second, when you download the hand images make sure you download them full size. These look like ones that I have uploaded but they should be 640 pixels high. If yours are smaller then download them again at full size ( do this by right clicking on the image and choosing download ). Note that hands rotate about the centre pixel of the handâ€™s image so you need to make sure that any hand image you use has the pivot point of the hand exactly in the middle of the image.

I hope that helps.

Yes, you can design your watch hands to any style you want as long as you have them placed correctly as described above.
