Feedback: Text nomenclature confused

Hopefully this is just because we are mid-journey with the text improvements. But at the moment we have an icon:

called a Text object, but it produces curves, surfaces or solids.

And a menu item:
called a Text Block, which produces a Text object.

Hi Jeremy - TextObject is not annotation text, it is text-shaped curves, surfaces or extrusions.


Hi @pascal,

Yes, understood. Just pointing out the confusing crossover of the terminology. Good to get this aspect tidied up.


Hi Jeremy - but these are different… the command run by the ‘text Block’ menu entry is Text, not TextObject. Am I being dense?


The command Text creates a Text object, according to Properties.

While the command TextObject creates things that are not Text objects. This is the bit I find to involve confused nomenclature.
