Nothing earth-shattering, it is for the time being mostly a rewrite and repackaging of:
  • delete-strokes
  • reverse-strokes
  • path-splice-strokes
  • path-summary
  • decompose-strokes

Theres a bit of a learning curve involved. Will have to dive into it later.
How would one use these files? Are they able to be used as a plugin? And i'm pretty new to plugin coding so bear with me. Smile

If the question is "can they be used from another plugin" the answer is "sort of" but IMHO you have better steal the code you need.
Added a "Break text path apart" function. Works like "Break path apart", but keeps together strokes that have nested bounding boxes (such as the inner loop of an O which is all enclosed in the outer loop). The result is that you get one path per letter (or diacritics).

Yes. Algorithm is simplistic but works even if you give a slant to the text:

Updated the script with two functions to sort strokes by position. Right now the only use case I have for this is preparing the path for an animation script I'm still working on...
