Wall of Text v1.1 (Jan 10 2023)


Recommended Posts

This plugin fits text into a rectangle to make a solid block of words. The effect can vary from a bold modernist manifesto to a dense wall of crazy scribble.

It automatically adjusts the size of each line to fit into the selection bounds or the page. You can choose where the line breaks are, or you can let the plugin decide with Word Wrap (its choice is psuedorandom, deterministic, and uses a heuristic that tries to not distort the text's aspect ratio too much). Word Wrap mode still respects your line breaks, and also converts _ characters to non-breaking spaces, in case you want some phrases laid out in a particular way but don't care about the rest.

When the prefect paint.net image is created, I will still be wondering "How they Do that?"- sigh☺️

  • Robot Graffiti changed the title to Wall of Text v1.1 (Jan 10 2023)

I made a new version.

 

I added a middle antialiasing option, that antialiases slopes and curves only, as a compromise between having blurry but accurate letter shapes or crisp but jagged lines. It works by snapping the vertices of the letter geometry to the nearest pixel before rendering the text.

I fixed some problems with rendering outlined text, by completely changing how the outlines are rendered.  It's slower but it looks way better in some funny edge cases, like when the selected colour is partly transparent or when a hole in a letter is smaller than the thickness of the outline. I also added an option to choose the thickness of the text outline.

I also updated the little effect icon. It's supposed to say "wall of text" now in tiny tiny letters...
