Hi Jiri,

the decision is all with you, that's why every two years we let everybody vote on the priority of wishlist features.
And start to implement them then from the top.

Feel there should be more chatting, more tips, more user interaction?

Jiri, hi! Use my hints:

1) Draw any path.
2) Click Item> Content> Text.
3) FOR LINE ENDINGS. Add text to path: any dingbat for start curve, one keyboard space, dingbat for end of curve, and press Ctrl + Enter. Use Glyph palette.
FOR FIGURED LINE. Add text to path: any dingbats from start to end and more, for a possible scale. Use Copy/Paste. And press Ctrl + Enter. Change size, color and tracking in Measurement Palette.
4) Select all text and change text alignment to Justify. Use Measurements Palette> Text Path> Align Text & Text Tab> Baseline for precise vertical alignment of dingbats.

1) Draw any box.
2) Use Scissors tool for cut box in any point.
3) Add text to path: any dingbats from start to end. Use Copy/Paste.
