Draw Text in Gadget

Postby CNCDaveToo » Thu Jan 25, 2018 3:58 am

I've built a gadget to help reduce steps and to gain precision and time. I've gotten the lines drawn, now I would like to add some text to the layer I've drawn into (ala Draw Text tool). I don't see anything in the API documentation about this. Is it possible to do from a Lua script?

Most of the Gadget API is for vector and toolpath creation; they do not in general duplicate the built in tools such as manipulating text.
Pity.

Cheers!
