Converting Text Characters into Drawing Objects

You can convert text characters into curves that you can edit and resize as you would any drawing object. Once you convert text into a drawing object, you can no longer edit the content of the text.

To convert text into a drawing object:

  1. Select the text that you want to convert, and do one of the following:

    In LibreOffice Draw, choose Shape - Convert - To Curve.

    In LibreOffice Impress, right-click the border of the text object, and then choose \<emph\>Convert - To Curve\</emph\>.

  2. If your text contains more than one character, the converted text becomes a grouped object. Double-click the group to edit individual objects. Press Esc when finished.

  3. Now, click the \<emph\>Points\</emph\> icon on the \<emph\>Drawing\</emph\> bar. Click the object. You can see all the Bézier points of the object. On the \<emph\>Edit Points\</emph\> bar, you can find various icons for editing, inserting and deleting points.
