General Usage Instructions

Pick the Select In Drawing check box to select the text manually or uncheck and pick an existing layer in the drawing that is listed in the Layer Selection window.

If you want to place results on a different layer, select Place on New Layer and then select an existing layer from the list. You may create a new layer by picking *New Layer* in the list and type a new and set a color. The new layer will appear in the Layer Selection window and will need to be selected.

Select the Create Polyline Contour to create polylines from the text. Set the Vectorization Distance to control the segment distance, the smaller the value, the sharper the outlines will be. The bigger the number, the less number of vector points will be drawn for rounded shapes.

Select the Create Hatch to convert the text into a filled hatch and no outlines. This will only be visible if the Fill Mode is turned on.

Pick OK to process using the settings and the changes will be made. If the Select in Drawing is selected, a prompt appears to Select Objects. Pick the text to convert and press <Enter> to finish.

After conversion, if the text does not meet the requirements; run TTConv again and pick the Delete button. The previous conversion will be erased and enter new values and pick OK.
