String to Curves Node

String to Curves node.

The String to Curves converts a string to curve instances. Each unique character used in the string is converted to a curve once, and further uses of that character are more instances of the same geometry.

This makes processing the output geometry very efficient, because each unique character only has to be processed once. However, it means that the result will be the same for every instance of the same character. To process each character individually, the Realize Instances Node can be used.

Truco

Socket inspection can be used to see the value of the string input used when the node was evaluated, by holding the mouse over the socket.

Entradas

String

Standard string input.

Tamaño

The size of each character. The values of the other inputs are scaled by this value.

Character Spacing

A factor by which the space between each character (kerning) is scaled on the X axis.

Word Spacing

A factor by which whitespace between words is scaled on the X axis.

Line Spacing

The distance between separate lines in the output. Scaled by the Size input.

Text Box Width

The maximum width of each line, though individual words will not be wrapped.

Text Box Height

The maximum height for all the lines of the text.

Propiedades

Font

Font glyph used to generate the curve.

Overflow
Overflow

Ajusta el texto al Ancho del cuadro de texto.

Scale To Fit

Escala el tamaño del texto para que se ajuste al Ancho del cuadro de texto y al Alto del cuadro de texto.

Truncar

Only outputs text characters that fit within the width and height, based on the Size input. Any part of the string that did not fit is moved to the Remainder output.

Alignment
Izquierda

Aligns the text to the left.

Centro

Aligns the text to the center.

Derecha

Aligns the text to the right.

Justify

Aligns the text to the left and right.

Flush

Aligns the text to the left and right with equal character spacing.

Align Y
Top Baseline

Aligns the text to the top baseline.

Superior

Aligns the text to the top.

Middle

Aligns the text to the middle.

Bottom Baseline

Aligns the text to the bottom baseline.

Inferior

Aligns the text to the bottom.

Punto de Pivote

Controls where on each character the output Pivot Point is placed.

Midpoint

Place the pivot points at the center of each character’s bounds.

Top Left

Place the pivot points at the top left of each character’s bounds.

Top Center

Place the pivot points at the middle of the top of each character’s bounds.

Top Right

Place the pivot points at the top right of each character’s bounds.

Bottom Left

Place the pivot points at the bottom left of each character’s bounds.

Bottom Center

Place the pivot points at the middle of bottom of each character’s bounds.

Bottom Right

Place the pivot points at the bottom right of each character’s bounds.

Salidas

Curve Instances

Curve instances geometry.

Remainder

The part of the text that did not fit in the box described by the Text Box Height and Text Box Width inputs. Only used in the Truncate overflow mode.

Line

An attribute field containing which the index of the each character’s line in the text layout (on the instance domain).

Punto de Pivote

Outputs the position described by the Pivot Point drop-down in the local space of each instance.

The node can be used to make overflowing text boxes. Here, the text that does not fit into the first node’s fix-sized text box is passed to a separate String to Curves node. And finally added with a Scale to Fit node.
