Snagit 13 Wish List 5

After downloading and installing the trial version of Serif DrawPlus X8 at http://www.serif.com/drawplus/, spend some time working with its text tools.  Note that when you're typing text, the text just keeps going out to the right until you press the Enter key to move down and type on the next line.  Text doesn't wrap and become hidden so you're constantly struggling to find the hidden text you've typed.  Click on Serif DrawPlus X8's white pointer tool to easily change line spacing, change spacing between characters or kern individual characters.  Filter Effects on the Format menu provide a very long list of special effects that can be applied to text.  A future version of Snagit could handle text easier and better while providing many more features.

Amongst other things, it would be good if there was an easy way to add plain text, unadorned with fancy effects.  Just.... text.

And to be able to add text to shapes without having to overly a separate text box

Hi Paul

Seems the Callout area is what you are looking for here. There are callouts that basically only offer text as well as callouts with text inside the callout shape.



Cheers... Rick :)

Hi Rick

Yes, I know about callouts - I use them all the time.  I was referring to shapes.  I don't see why shapes don't have a text option.

Cheers

Paul
