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".
