invisible box / cutting off text

Postby laneyink » Sun Oct 11, 2015 8:44 am

anytime i type it seems there is an invisible box around the words that is cutting off parts of the beginning, ends, bottoms and sometimes tops of my words. Just got a new mac and had to update to inkscape .91 I'm sure this is some simple setting but I'm not familiar enough to know what.. Id really appreciate some help. I cut vinyl letter stencils and only use words on inkscape so this is causing me a lot of trouble. Thanks

Hi.

Probably you made a flowed text instead of a regular one. Make sure not to rectangle select the text area, just click with the text tool to write.

Thanks for the reply. I've been working with text tool from the left bar only. This is the way I've done it for years but since I got the new version .91 on my new Mac I've been having this problem. I was hopeing there may be some new setting I didn't know to turn on/off? Thanks

There's a known bug, as far as I know... Even two, it seems:

https://bugs.launchpad.net/inkscape/+bug/1283194 and
https://bugs.launchpad.net/inkscape/+bug/1450675 could be the right ones - does it change if you zoom in and out?
Something doesn't work? - Keeping an eye on the status bar can save you a lot of time!
