I never thought of that way ... extensions>color>custom command. I guess i am just so used to doing things the old way.Inkscape is such a cool program!
Nice job Rob! Thanks for the lesson. :)

Remember also that you can make that path the text follows invisible by lowering it to the bottom.
If you want to bend it more precise just either adjust the path it follows, or use Path>Path effect editor and use bend. apply on canvas.You have to do a path>object to path on the text first to convert it to a path.Select the text then go to Path>path effects editor and select bend in the menu.It should be the first choice.This will create a green line within the text you can bend on canvas to adjust the bend a bit to suit your needs.You can use this effect on any path you want. :)
Just a few helpful hints.

The path is sitting up above the page boundaries of the banner.

Hey Rob?

I see an arc which would be some sort of path. How do I get rid of that? When I exported the out that light path line was still there.

Edit: I can double click on that path but when I delete it the text on the path is not longer there and looks really strange!

Just select everything BUT the path , group them into one group and save the selection.

Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr!!! :yell

I tried selecting the path and it selects it fine. I click on that lower in stack button and nothing happens, I even tried to take the 'Y' value in a negative direction and nothing happens.

I did try grouping .. that was another joke! I'd get everything shift+select and then click the group button and something would end up missing. It's like I can select everything!

Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!!!! :gaah

I'm feeling pretty mentally incompetent right now! :( And my wife is looking at me cause she doesn't understand the frustrated look on my face!

I usually select the path and change its stroke and fill both to none. You can the select and edit it in outline mode, but it is effectively unclickable and "gone" while performing normal editing.
