Add text in the Notes area

Here is a custom panel with two ways of adding text to your Notes area:

Notes Text.tvpx
notes text.png

The text will be added as pixels and handled as the usual notes.

type your text.png

"Notes 3 lines" will allow you to write 3 lines of text. But 3 lines only.

If you make a selection of one or several images, your text will fit the selection.

This is useful, thank you.

Would it be possible to make the text size adjustable , so it could be smaller text ?

This will make it so the text tool is not changed to the parameters specified in the original code. So the settings you had before you activated the function will persist.

Thank you , kind sir !

It is true that in almost all cases "anything is possible in TVPaint" , so thanks for affirming that .

That is a cool effect. Wonder if you could tweak it to use other two dimensional shapes other than just text. Might help with that win thingiverse
