- SVG 2 text using the CSS
shape-insideproperty: This new flowed text automatically includes a fallback option (in SVG 1.1), and will show up in web browsers and other software. This type of text can be created by clicking and dragging a box on canvas, if the option 'Use SVG 2 auto-flowed text' is enabled in the Text tool's preferences. When the option is enabled, it will also be used for
Text → Flow into frame. Kerning and letter rotation do not work with this type of text.
- SVG 2 text with
inline-sizeproperty: This is the new "Column mode" of the text tool, that can be created by clicking on the canvas, typing, and then dragging the diamond-shaped handle at the end of the text to determine the width of the text. It creates flowed text columns without a predetermined height. Note that this text can be left-, center- or right-aligned, but that justification is not possible. Kerning and letter rotation also do not work with this type of text. These texts include an SVG 1.1 fallback, too. To convert the text back to SVG 1.1 text, Ctrl-click on the diamond (this will result in all the text being placed on a single line).
