pathAttr

Text-on-path attributes.
pathAttr= * direction *[, * startPos *[, * endPos *]]
direction
norm | reverse
startPos
Text start position on path (real 0.0…1.0).
endPos
Text end position on path (real 0.0…<2.0).
Specify norm to draw text starting near the first path vertex and reverse to draw text in the opposite direction, starting near the last vertex.
startPos and endPos allow adjusting where on the path the text will be drawn. 0.0 corresponds to the first vertex in the path and 1.0 to the last vertex; intermediate values express the distance along the path between the first and last vertex.

Properties

Layer attribute. Ignored if the layer does not include textPs= and textPath= commands.
startPos must be greater than or equal to 0 and less than 1.0. endPos must be greater than startPos and less than or equal to 1.0 when applied to an open path, or less than or equal to ( startPos + 1.0) when applied to a closed path.

Default

pathAttr=norm,0,1
