Fontwork Dialog (for putting text along a curve)

Simple tool for putting text along a curve without any fancy effects.

note

This Fontwork dialog is meant for making text follow a curve. Draw a curve, double-click it and type text into it. With the curve selected, you can now activate the Fontwork command. .


Alignment icons

You can make text follow any shape. Most of the custom shapes available in the Drawing toolbar need to be converted to a different type before you can use them with Fontwork. In Impress or Draw, right-click the shape and select Convert - To Curve/Polygon/Contour. If you wish, you can now copy and paste the converted shape into Writer for use with Fontwork. Shapes in the Legacy Circles and Ovals and Legacy Rectangles toolbars do not need to be converted. The Arc included in the basic shapes is also a legacy shape.
