Is there any plans for the future to ad the ability to curve text? Just wondering.

I do not think there is any plans for this feature. In fact, not many text editors can do it. Microsoft Word can use WordArt, so I guess that if it's just static text you want, you can always make your curved text in Word using WordArt, take a screenshot, save the curved text as a bitmap or jpeg, and then load this file into PSM. But for variable curved data, it's not possible at the moment, nor is it in the plans for future versions.

If you really wanted, you could create a text box for every letters in your field, and manually position them in a curved pattern by changing their Rotation parameters, which could work if your text is short. Obviously, this isn't a viable solution for larger texts.
