AddTextToPath() - convert to path

Post by lazi »

While PathItems() features in 7.0 offers possibility to alter an already created path users can't get enough :)

I have found that text added to path with AddTextToPath can be read out with PathItems() only as text which is nice, but not when I would like to alter shape of the text itself.

So I wish an additional switch for AddTextToPath() to convert the added text to vector primitives, lines and curves, subpathes.
Then when I traverse the path with PathItems() I will get moveto, lineto, curveto, etc for the letters of the text.

Please consider this!
Thanks in advance!

I still have this on my list but it's a lot of work and probably not too many people are interested in this so it's not a high priority at the moment.

Bad news.
I thought it didn't involve a lot of work. But at least keep it on the list, please!
