linked offset text in Inkscape (for versions previous to version 1.0)
Published at : 23 Dec 2020
Learn how to use the linked offset feature in Inkscape to create text with an offset border.
UPDATE - As of Inkscape 1.0. the linked offset no longer works the same way with text. Clicking linked offset with convert the text to group of paths.
To use linked offset in inkscape 1.0 and later, you need to select the text, convert it to a path, ungroup, union all the characters together, then apply linked offset.
I hope to add a new video soon showing these steps.
