Description

For multi-line watermarks, a text area instead of a single-line entry would be extremely useful.

My guess is that this would be a relatively simple change with a high usefulness / effort ratio?

History

#1 Updated by Tobias Ellinghaus almost 3 years ago

I fear not. Looking at a multi line SVG it's not just a control character that is inserted into the text but all the line spacing has to be done explicitly. So instead of the dumb text replacement we are currently doing we would have to parse the SVG and then alter it accordingly. I don't think that is in scope for that module. Unless of course someone wants to provide patches.

Ah, okay...

how about a textarea with automatic linebreaks? Would that be easier?

What would that change? We would still have to add a lot of code to generate a proper SVG from that.
