Text Along Path

Recommended Posts

I need to use Text Along Path in a script.

Anyone has an example on how to do?

I was'n able to call DoMenuText... 


Thank you

The resulting object is a PIO. Inspect the field names with the plug-in manager. I suspect that the text goes in the profile group and the path in the path group.

Hi Jos,

I don't understand your post. 

I need to create a Text Along Path using Vectorscript, but I don't found a call nor a menu chunk to insert in DoMenuTextByName(...

Text Along Path is a plug-in object, so to create one in VS, you use a CreateCustomObject call, not DoMenuText:


CreateCustomObjectPath('TextAlongPath', handleToPath, handleToText);


To set parameter values, you use SetRField().  The available parameters for this object are:


Text Size

Text Type As


Above Path

Rot About Path
