Pitstop check overlapping text

Post by Erazor » Mon Jan 24, 2022 4:05 pm

Hi all,

Does anyone know if it is possible in Pitstop Server, latest version, to check for overlapping text like you could for overlapping objects?

All input very welcome and thanks in advance!

There's a prebuilt action
Find Overlapping Text

Hi Malcolm,

That is true but although it says it selects the text it actually checks for overlapping objects, not only text.

The Action List "Find Overlapping Text" logs any objects that overlap any text. That is indeed not what it says it should do, so I'd consider that a bug.

Luckily it's easy to fix: replace the "Select all" at the top with "Select text segments" (so you'd have two "Select text segments" in a row). Alternatively you could add "Duplicate top of selection stack" _after_ "Select text segments".
