This extension renders all text (or all selected text) in your document into using specialized "stroke" or "engraving" fonts designed for plotters. Whereas regular "outline" fonts (e.g., TrueType) work by filling in the region inside an invisible outline, engraving fonts are composed only of individual lines or strokes; much like human handwriting. Engraving fonts are used for creating text paths that computer controlled drawing and cutting machines (from pen plotters to CNC routers) can efficiently follow. A complete user guide is available to download at: .  The classic Hershey fonts included are derived from work by Dr. A. V. Hershey. Additional modern "EMS" fonts in this distribution are derivatives created from fonts licensed under the SIL Open Font License.
