This page mentions a Freehand Path Drawing Tool. However, KWord does not seem to have such a tool (as of version 2.0.2). Is it a feature of a previous version, that has yet to be implemented for KDE 4? Users are bound to be confused and frustrated if they try to follow this tutorial. Unless someone modifies it I think it is best to discard it, or at least alert users that this tutorial is relevant for older versions of KOffice only. --Claus chr October 12 2009

KOffice has not been released for 2+ years. Remove to avoid confusion for now. We'll be happy to re-introduce them here when they are available.
It was not clear to me when I first tried it, nor after reading this tutorial that the text must be selected (e.g. click and drag across or hold shift and move cursor with arrow keys to highlight). I thought the whole artistic text worked on one font/style/size like Inkscape or GIMP's text tools, so I was unsuccessful at changing it until I found I had to select. I nearly filled out a bug report on it before I made that discovery. (Incidentally, if triple-clicking the text to "select all" worked, I would have discovered it earlier.)
