Hello to everybody,

how to draw character outlines for plotter to cut the letters out of the plate in mkiv? mmakempy.pdf is over 10 years old, so the situation could change since then.

Anyway, even if I stick to the above method, the minimal example

    graphictext "Test";

doesn't work as expected in mkiv. *.mpy file is empty.

In mkii error is issued during the run. Ignoring it finally produces the outlines, so it seems, everything needed is available (gs, pdftops, pstoedit). Anyway, mkiv way is preferred.

Thanks for the help,
