Talk:KOffice/Tutorials/Artistic Text Shape

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

I just discovered that my remarks above are unfounded. The tutorial can be followed in Karbon14, and when I copied the combined path and artistic test shape and then pasted it into KWord, the freehand tool magically appeared in the tool box. It seem, that it remains availlable the next time KWord is started. I have not been able to find a way to activate the freehand tool from within KWord, though. I feel that we need an explanation in the tutorial. Does anyone know of a simple way to activate the freehand tool? --Claus chr October 12 2009
