HersheyText Addon Inkscape

edited January 9 in AxiDraw

I'm interested in the Axidraw to write "handwritten" cards to my customers. I have a couple of questions that i would like to have answered before the i place the order.

1. Single line fonts
I downloaded the HersheyText addon for inkscape. It works but it seems to only work with one line at a time. Is it possible to copy and pasty the complete text in the addon and have it automaticly in the same format with linebreaks/enter?

Right now if i past a complete letter it puts everything in one line. It takes a long time to copy a letter sentence for sentence.

2. Normal fonts Preview
Do you have an preview of a normale fonts that is written with a fountainpen? 

Thanks in advance for the time taken to answer my questions.

Kind regards,



  • We are working on a new extension that is able to convert paragraph text into single stroke text, in the Hershey Text style, with a limited set of fonts. However, since it is using different fonts, there will never be an exact layout match. (Linebreaks/enter can be used to help out with this, of course.)

    We do have several examples of regular fonts written with fountain pen on the AxiDraw product page.
  • Ok, sounds good. Do you have an eta? 

    Is this written with a single stroke text or a normal font?
  • The invitation is made with traditional outline fonts.
