How to bring your own Bezier drawing in!
As far as I know the drawing app Canvas is the only program that lets you export the Bezier Control Points of a Bezier as a textlist.
Mac Trail: http://www.macupdate.com/app/mac/1924/canvas
Not working on OSX 10.7
PC Trail: http://www.acdsee.com/en/products/canvas-12
Open the Canvas Trail ( I have nothing to do with that company)
Use the pentool to draw your Bezier.
Make sure you are using pixel as your Unit
When you have finished your drawing go to:
MENU: Object / Object Path Editor / PopupMenu / Copy
Now you have all the Bezier Control Points in memory
Use this script to parse the data in memory in Livecode
put the clipBoardData[text] into xxx
replace "," with "." in xxx
set the itemDel to tab
repeat with i = 1 to number of lines of xxx
put trunc(item 1 of line i of xxx) into item 1 of line i of xxx
put trunc(item 2 of line i of xxx) into item 2 of line i of xxx
replace tab with "," in xxx
Now you have a pointList that LiveCode can work with.
You can then replace the points in Custom Prop LeoPoints with your own.
