1.5.00 update bug text bend function

The bend text function is broken when you also use horizontal spacing, the bend no longer takes the spacing into account so you are left with a long tail on the text see Image, the text at the top has no horizontal spacing the text at the bottom has 10 points of horizontal spacing ( the problem is it is anchoring the start of the text, you can rotate it to get it positioned right but its making an easy job so much more difficult.)

This seems likely related to the same issue seen on X alignment for text with HSpace adjustments.

@Rick and @LightBurn for awareness and confirmation.

yes sounds like its has inherited the problem, i am using text to path now, more steps involved but end positioning is far easier to align so will probably stick with that option in the future

Added to the report, thank you. :slight_smile:

Update: We’ve have a fix for the issue with text not using the proper alignment when HSpace is non-zero. Fix will be in 1.6, at a minimum.



If willing, we have a patch release coming you can access, currently in our beta folder.

  • Bugfix: HSpace wasn’t being included in new font advance code

Thank you, i have updated and tested this function and it is fixed for me :slight_smile:
