Problem with text saying its not pathed


#1

Hi guys! I am having a problem with my text saying it is not path, even though it is. Also if I don’t have text on something it saying it as well. I need help ASAP!!! I am making product for some customers. Thank you!


#2

What software are you using for the design and did you convert the text into a vector path?


#3

I am using Inkscape and I use object to path with the text. But my shapes aren’t transferring either


#4

Inkscape shapes require an extra step in order to convert them to a path.

I’m going to link to a couple of tutorials that I believe have the correct information in them:

Hopefully those will help get you going. :slightly_smiling_face:

Also, look carefully all over your file. There might be some tiny bit of text somewhere that is giving you that message.


#6

What @cynd11 said. You may have a rogue text element, maybe even off your main work area.


#7

This is usually an empty text element where you click with the text tool but don’t commit. While you don’t have any text per se in the document, you have a text element that is calling for a font, etc. so that’s identified as text.

My “favorite” Inkscape gotcha.
