texts on circle

Postby Guillaume » Thu Oct 10, 2019 6:56 am

I may have a brief contribution about entering text on both top and bottom of a circle and how to center both. Shall I do it here, or will I waste my time and yours?

I for one am very eager to see what can be added to the subject, although it has been raised more times than I can remember. Have you done a quick forum search 'text on circle' or 'text on path' or similar to see if what you are going to post has already been covered in depth? don't let my comment stop you from posting though, and certainly in the new forum you may well be the first to raise the topic

I was going to send you somethig but was told that Inkscape does not open file extension .odt. Which extension do I change it to? I don't see the .PDF extension as being available.

Sorry, I have no idea what you are asking. I personally do not have time to review anything. The forum allows only certain kinds of attachments. If your contribution is such that it cannot be posted like other people have in the past, maybe you could make a YouTube video or a blogpost

Yes, Druban, that's exactly why I have done this. Yes, bits and pieces thrown around like handfuls of seeds for chickens to pick, so many contributions with missing steps, incomplete sentences, assumptrions and misunderstandings. Lots of good will but hurried descriptions and details. As a novice in the Inkscape world I was looking for one good set of instructions. Well, maybe my attemps at clarification will bring about an integrated and unified whole. Let me have your critiques so that I may improve this presentation. I have chosen to put my instructions in an attachment in order not to burden the forum but rather let individuals judge if they need to open the file.
.odt is the file extension of OpenOffice. I have been able to have it converted to .pdf. Please letr me know if you opened it.

That is amazing! We have been trying to solve that problem for years, in fact Inkscape was actually written solely to find a way to do that, but though Fermat proved that it must be possible, no one had actually figured it out until now.
Not a minute to lose. Humanity must be told. Please post this on every possible forum you can find. Hopefully the developers will recognize the enormous significance of your contribution and immediately add it to the manual, perhaps here
