Import Text From A Spreadsheet?

Postby Husky2000 » Tue Nov 26, 2019 12:14 am

Hi All, this is my first post here.

I would like to import text into my Inkscape project from a spreadsheet. Is this possible?

There used to be an extension called "Text from CSV" or something like that which seems like it would have worked but that extension is nowhere to be found these days (I think).

I've been reading about an extension called Generator. Would this do the trick?

Any other suggestions?

Thank you!

Try it - I made a couple examples. It only works on Linux, though. The version for 1.0 should work on Windows, too, but only with 1.0(beta).

Thank you for that. No idea how to use Linux though ha ha, but I'll give it a shot. Thank you for your reply!
