Goal: When running Object to Path on a word, I'd like each letter to have its own path.

All the tutorials I saw behave exactly like the above description, but when I try to run this action I get a single path for the whole word.

Is this something I should configure in Preferences?

  • MacOS 14.2.1
  • Inkscape 1.3.2

Edit: I found that I can use Path > Break Apart in order to have the letters separated. Still wondering if this can be achieved immediately when using the object to path function.

    You can't do that in one step. Not possible AFAIK. Do this instead: Path > Object to Path, then Path > Split Path.
