Render Images

Hello all -

I've been away for a few months and lo! when I get back to Rev (just  
when I thought I was starting to get the hang of it) they go and  
release a new version...   :-)

A question:  the release blurb for 2.7 says: "Render an image from  
any object on-screen, preserving the alpha channel, then transform  
and save."  Now this seems to be exactly what I need!...  I would  
like to convert some formatted text (i.e. a field) to a PNG file with  
transparency.  Can I do this in 2.7?  Can't find reference to this in  

I can achieve a similar effect by exporting (via snapshot) text on a  
white background then displaying resulting image using the "multiply"  
or "screen" inks (which are brilliant, btw) but that limits my  
options for colours in text.

Any ideas???
