Recently while uploading designs I have been getting a lot of "Your design has text. . . " messages. Trouble is, I VERY seldom use text in my designs. Where and why is the message coming to me. By the way this started when I did not upgrade to Premium
You will get that message when there is text in an SVG that has not been converted to a path.
Glowforge does not support text in SVG, never has. It’s got nothing to do with “premium”…
Thank you. As I said I have been getting the message on designs that do NOT have text at all. To me its a bother to get messages that don’t apply
In Inkscape highlight the text and under “Object” click on “Object to Path” and that will take care the issue.
Post one and someone can take a look. It won’t generate that message unless there is text in the file.
You are very welcome. Enjoy your Thanksgiving…
Huh. I frequently get “this design contains a clip path” messages when there isn’t a clip path (I honestly don’t even know how to create one!), but I’ve never erroneously gotten the text one. If it’s not messing with your ability to create your item, you can just ignore it.
I get the text message all the time even though I know there is no text. I ignore it all the time. Unless I forgot to convert text to path when I actually want it to engrave.
Are you using AI? I believe that’s one of the packages that will keep a text object even if it’s blank. Where you have the text tool enabled and click on the design. Even if you don’t actually type any text, it leaves a text tag that the GF sees and triggers the warning.
There was a version of Inkscape that did the same thing but I don’t think it still does it in 1.0
Illustrator will definitely do this.
Thankyou. I was wondering if I was the only one or if i had some hidden text
