I would like to create a vector of text, code to be exact. I do have quite a bit of code to use and don't want to color it all (brackets and all) by hand.

Do you know a way of doing it? A plugin maybe?

I tried print screen -> tracing, but that effects in bad quality.

  • Are you looking for something that will auto-color type? It's unclear.
