How to resize a path without resizing the text on it?


Question

I made an ellipse path and used the "type on a path tool" tool to make a rounded text effect, but when I'm resizing the path, the font resizes too, according to the path aspect ratio.

Is there any way to resize a path while maintaining the font size?

An apparently not so known feature of Adobe Illustrator is that the path that you typed on still remains a separate object, albeit grouped under the text object. You can select just the path with any of the 2 white arrow tools allows you to select the sub object.

enter image description here

After you have selected the sub object you can manipulate it just as it was just the path and not touch the text. The text will re flow in this case. You could also color the line.
