Chapter 6. Working with Vectors > Converting Text to Curves

Converting Text to Curves

Text that is created as a vector can be converted to curves. The text can be converted as one multi-path object or as individual objects for each character in the text string. To convert vector text to a curve, select the text and right-click on the image canvas with the Object Selection tool. On the pop-up menu, select either Convert Text to Curves > As Single Shape or Convert Text to Curves > As Character Shapes. (Alternatively, right-click the vector text’s object button in the Layers palette, and select Convert Text to Curves in the context menu.)

Figure 6.25 shows a dingbat text character entered as vector text. Once a character is converted to a shape, it can be edited with the Pen tool in Node Edit mode. Figure 6.26 shows the converted character with its nodes revealed, in the middle of being modified with the Pen tool in Node Edit.
