Break text box into separate lines

Postby just testing » Sat May 03, 2008 8:52 pm

Is there a way to break text box into separate lines?

When I import PDF files to most text comes grouped into a text box. They look OK but need to have them in separate lines.

The path object can be separated but I could not find same operation for text lines.

Sorry for replying without having a decent solution but I joined this forum to ask the very same question. The only way to break the the text box is to convent all objects to paths and then delete everything except the one you need to modify. I guess you already know that, but I doubt there is an actual function to do that. Hope someone will help.

I'm not aware of a way to split the lines of a text box into seperate boxes. If you need this you would need to draw a box for each line. You can set up the boxes so the text will automatically flow through each box - ... owtext.png
