I'm trying to create a gradual text the follow a path using Inkscape. I know it can be done using Illustrator (see image bellow), but I can't figure it out using Inkscape.
Use the 'Envelope Deformation LPE' and the 'Bend LPE', in that order.
- Type text.
- Path > Union (does not work in the beta of 1.0 currently, use Path > Object to path -> Ungroup -> Path > Combine instead.)
- Path > Path effects
- Envelope Deformation LPE
- Switch to node tool
- Edit top path / bottom path to increase thickness in the middle
- Edit on-canvas
