ungrouping text to manipulate individual letters.

Asked by Roger E Givens on 2011-11-22

I am an old time Adobe Illustrator user and was attempting to ungroup text paths so that I could work with the text as an individual form of bezels and paths. Is this possible?
Thanks,
Roger

Hello,

You must convert the text to path first (with Path>Object to Path, or Shift+Ctrl+C). Then you can ungroup the letters of your text with Ctrl+U and modify it with the node tool.

Regards.

JazzyNico,
     Thank you for your information on the text manipulation question...your answer worked just fine.
I have just started to use this program and I was not finding the answer in the help window. Maybe I
just didn't know where to look. Hope to learn as I go.
Thanks again,
Roger
