Text path. Specifies the path to be used as the baseline for the text provided with textPs=.

textPath= pathDefinition


Path data.

See clipPath= for additional information, including a description of pathDefinition.


Different from clipPath=, text paths are not closed automatically when ‘z’ or ‘Z’ is not specified at the end of a sub-path.

pathDefinition may include multiple sub-paths. Text is rendered on the sub-paths in the order specified.

The RTF commands \ql, \qc, \qr, \li, and \ri can be used to position the rendered text along the path.


Text layer attribute ( textPs= only). Ignored by other layers. Applies to layer=0 if specified for layer=comp. Ignored if textPs= are present.

An error is returned if a layer includes both textPath= and textFlowPath=.


None, for standard text rendering.
