I see.
The complexity has risen quite a bit. You really have to know these tools, to get to a specific effect.

How does the plug-in know how many words to apply to one spike of the skeleton star ?
Can i apply a whole sentence to one spike and only one word to the next ?

I don't see it as complexity but as openness, tools for your toolbox. I prefer a wood lathe to a machine that can only produce Regency chairs Smile

Well dont get me wrong, i think you did a great job of making the plug-in more useful, without filling the menu with a hundred new entries.
It was just when i installed the new version, i thought to myself: oh another menu entry, not sure i want that.

I see. I think i may be confused because this started as a request for rotated text.
So multi means, that text can be applied to several skeleton paths at once.
Each paragraph in the plug-in to one of the skeleton spokes.

More accurately, a different text can be applied to several different strokes in one go. And in the input widget there are no "paragraphs", only "lines".

I don't think Gimp can do this. (If I am wrong someone will correct me - watch this space.)

Inkscape can do what you want.

Note: Don't draw a text box for your text. Just click once on the canvas and enter your text as one long line.

Yes, very easy.

1. Draw a *closed* path (the red line in your previous post)
2. Type your text (one long line)
3. Select both path and text
4. Text > Flow into Frame.
