Ungrouping
« on: October 03, 2010, 09:15:34 AM »
Is it possible in Inkscape to type a word/phrase and then ungroup so you can move or resize the letters separately as you can in DMII?  I thought I did it once but cannot do it now.

With Inkscape 0.47:  

Type your word/phrase
Use Path/Object to path
Ungroup either by right clicking on your words and selecting Ungroup, or from the menu Object/Ungroup

When you use Object to path on text in Inkscape 0.47, it automatically puts each letter in its own Path and then uses Object/Group to keep them together.
