Font Manipulation

Recommended Posts


I need to take a block of text and squash it on the x axis.

In other words asymmetrically scale it perhaps x = .4 & y=1

Can this be done ?

The application for this is some slanted signage in elevation etc.

Any help appreciated

If you are using a true type font you can use the "true type to polyline" command on the text menu. then Possibly convert to lines, group it, then you should be able manipulate it. Although you can no longer edit the text after you do this

Good Luck
