Text adding a graphics within

I would like to see a graphics arena within the text menu. It is very basic now  and I think this addition would help. You could add things like shading ,3d ,shadow  etc. All the choices now seem the same with little or no difference between the choices. Inside coloring with different colored outlines. There are so many things to add to update this portion of your software. Having nodes on the letters them selves to stretch the shape to achieve the shape and design you want. I think this would be a great addition! Now I have to do polylines and hatching to create some of the effects I need and it is so time consuming.

Seems to me that you are asking for the enhancements that provided a 3D effect to a strictly 2D application, which is not the case here.

What you could do as a workaround is create the 3D effect in your 2D application and then create an image that can be wrapped onto any 3D object (or one of its facets).  It would take less time to calculate when rendering.
