In Krita 4.2 ,the text tool doesn't provide the feature to put text on a path,but it does give the ability to curve text using Svg scripting.

On using a Svg script to create curved text (below) by using the textPath element ,the text simply vanishes.The curve below is constrained to an area between (0,0)(100,100)

What should be the syntax to create curved text with Svg in Krita?

<text <textPath d="M10,90 Q90,90 90,45 Q90,10 50,10 Q10,10 10,40 Q10,70 45,70 Q70,70 75,50">style="fill:#ffff00; letter-spacing:0; word-spacing:0; kerning:0; font-family:Segoe Script; font-size:18pt; font-size-adjust:0.16; font-weight:400; font-style:normal; font-stretch:0">This text is on a Curved Path</textPath></text>
