Would be nice for engraving on the back side of plexiglass or lexxan. The front would be smooth. Also the ability for selecting text on a curve for text milling in the cam plug-in. These are both CAM related, this may need to be in a different catagory.

re: Mirror Copy Text

How about a "Backwards" Text Style; would that work?
You will have to create the Style.

That would work just fine. I thought of this also but had not tried it. That was good looking out there John. Thanks for the help

EDIT: I just tested the "Insert Text Along A Curve" tool. It worked just great. I then fired up the CAM module to test creating a curved text tool path. I could not select the text for text milling until I exploded the text. Then I had to select each character seperately & this creates curved text tool path.

Once again john, Thanks for the help.
