    Using WF 4.0...need to make a label to wrap around the cylinder of
    another part. What is the best way to project text so that it wraps
    around the cylinder without becoming stretched out and distorted? TIA.

    The function that will create your label-like geometry is 'Edit>Wrap'. Pick the part you want to wrap the curve around. If you don't already have a sketch, pick a plane to sketch on. It may need to be offset from the surface of the part but parallel to the cylinder axis. The the text with the Text tool. That's about all there is to it.
