Recommended Posts

but why would you?if you only need straight text  just set the Text to layer plane and it handles like a (flat but editable) 3d Object

Perhaps for signage, 3d printing as an architectural concept ...

All the lettering is lit...either by "glow" or back lighting or a combination

Thanks Allen, i am aware of the 3D text setting. it was, at least for me, just easier ( i dont have to deal with a path) and worked well in VW2016....

@joergHi, just draw a line and then text and select both then select text and text along path, then rotate 3D the text about the x axis on centre of object and it wil stand up. HTH

Also straight texts seems ok in Open GL on my computer.
