Select and modify multiple texts.

Postby FixitMike » Sat Dec 12, 2015 7:27 pm

I would find a gadget where one could select multiple texts and change the font and size of all of them at one time very useful.

Hopefully, the texts would not loose their kerning and angular orientation like they do when you modify them using the text tool.

If you select them all then hit the T text tool and change the font and size it changes all of what you have selected. Do you mean something else?

It doesn't seem to have an option for the Font. And if there is more than one text, the entire pattern is enlarged, rather than the individual lines. The T tool is the size tool in my VCarve Pro.

In response to FixitMike, it doesn't work that way in Aspire. If you select all text and go into Create Text tool, then try to change the font, it says there is nothing selected. What am I missing?

Seems to be a bit of confusion here. Pressing T (in Aspire and VCarve) accesses the Size tool which is a different thing from the Create Text tool which doesn't have a shortcut key. I think the mention of T was in reference to the icon itself rather than a key.

The size tool can do part of what Mike is looking for by using the percentage option. That way it will enlarge the individual items by that percentage rather than setting the whole selection a fixed size as happens when entering an exact size.
