Table of Contents
Inkscape has a sophisticated system for creating and manipulating text. Text strings can include Bold or Italicized substrings and changes in font type and size. Text can be justified on the right and/or left. It can be horizontal or vertical. Individual characters can be kerned. Text can be put on a path or flowed into an arbitrarily shaped path.
There are three types of text objects in Inkscape. The first is regular text. The second is flowed text; this is a text object that includes a rectangular frame. The third is linked-flowed text. This is a text object where the text is flowed into a separate arbitrary shape or path object(s). It is discussed at the end of this chapter. When a text object is selected, its type is shown in the Notification Region.
