Having issues with FontWorks?

       Your message seems to have gotten lost in these bits & bytes. ;-)

       Hopefully, now someone in the know will respond to your query.

       My only suggestion - if you could contact the company who makes this
piece of software, talking with a live person, have him walk you through
this?

       Hoping you'll have the solution shortly,

Subject: [libreoffice-users] Having issues with FontWorks?

Have a Harley Owners Group Image, and I'm trying to insert a curved
chapter name in the image. Found a nice tutorial on doing it, but it is for
version 3.2. I have the latest version, and it isn't the same.

I've come closest in writer, but it is giving me the text with a major
shadow?

I've had the same issue using draw, but in draw, when I move the text over
the image, it goes black even thou I have set it to front. Even so, the
font is
showing as having a large shadow of the font.

Is there some different way of doing simple 2D curved text without a
shadow??

Anyone know of a tutorial for doing curved fonts with the latest
libreoffice.

Thanks.

Just a suggestion: Import the Harley image into inkscape, create a new
layer and create your desired text there. Why use a word processor to
manipulate graphics?

I forgot about FontWorks.  I did not remember LO having it as an option.
Are you making the curved text below or above the logo/image?  I was
fond of "CHAPTER" above the image and the "number" [ONE, TWO, THREE]
below the image.

I do most of my logo creations with a combination of GIMP and Inkscape.  
I had to do a lot of basic logo creation and specialized watermarks over
the years.  Have you ever tried creating a watermark that prints out
nice, BUT will not show up if you try to make a copy of the watermarked
page?
