Great, thank you. Any chance to get an adjustable line-height (e.g. in %) in a future version?

Martin,
could you please check the crop handling?
Using zText on an image with a 1.5 aspect ratio where a crop with an aspect ratio of 2 is applied will cut off part of the text.

sorry for the late reply... i've been away some days...

did you try the same with leaving the crop-cursor-mode?
as long as you stay in crop-mode the image is handled completely by the pipe-line. when crop-mode is left only the cropped image is handled this changes a lot for the plugin.
and could you please tell the whole zText-settings?

I am actually using a preset in a queue, I applied it with corp cursor mode active only to make the screenshot.

Re: zText

Post by tintin »

so, i have checked it now....

the phenomenon you are describing is normal zText behavior. the reason is that you have positioned the text near the bottom line of the image. this happens through y-pos-slider. this setting moves the mid-point of the drawn text in the set direction. the problem is that this is referred to the edge length but independently of the text width, means a small text would be needed to be moved more than a long text. through that it depends also on the edge length when having constant text-lenght, which is your case....
you can overcome this problem with using the setting 'vertical position' on the 'preset'-tab of zText. just set it to 'bottom' while leaving the Y-pos setting on the 'Basic'-tab at 50.0.
i have prepared that for you in the preset attached...

br,
tintin

p.s.: might similarly useful for the horizontal position as well...
