Can you just apply the text to a new curve, but just use a straight line?
Sorry - just thinking out loud.
Yeah, that was kinda where i was heading - a little less elegant than I'd like but definitely possible. Thankfully most of my curved text projects are setup as templates and I don't need to do this too often.
I've also found just copying the text and clicking to start a new element and pasting works - and is probably a bit faster, too.
Ideally, just right clicking the text and having an option to "Remove from path" or something like that would be great.
