Text outline


Recommended Posts

Hi guys

 

Not sure if this has been covered by anyone else. There are over 700 pages to scroll through on topics for discussion and frankly I cant be arsed looking through all that lol. 

 

Basically, I want to add an outline to text where the "pointy" parts of the text aren't rounded around the pointed areas. See this "W" for example. The two points and the bottom and the middle point of the W. The outline plugin will create an outline that would be rounded on those points, rather than follow the pointed areas into a point?? I want to have an outline to follow the points other than the rounded outline i'm getting. I'm being such a newbie here, but can anyone help me out with this one???

We have all had to learn how to use PDN by perusing the forum via Search  you can write in "How to outline Text" and then read up on exactly what you are looking for.

Unfortunately, there's currently no  plugin to do that. The requested method is called "polygon offsetting." In an earlier thread on the subject, I give a little detail on what's required.

You could do it this way too.

I used BotBait's Selection Outline from his Plugin Pack.

 

This is a good idea, I will try this and thanks for the suggestion

Had a read through. seems like theres no easy way around this within pdn. I dont think it's impossible though. Are there other programs out there that can produce this 'effect'? If there are, maybe take some pointes on how those other programs do it??? There must be a way around this that can be put into plugin form?
