Lettering 4 (Custom Baselines)

In Embird 2006 and later you can create custom baselines for "Insert Text" and "Insert Font Engine Text" dialog boxes. The Digitizing Tools of Embird Studio are used for preparing the baseline .ETB file, which must be stored in "C:\Program Files\EMBIRD32\PLUGINS" folder (or in "C:\EMBIRD32\PLUGINS" folder if you are using version prior to Embird 2006) to be recognized by Embird. This tutorials explains how to create the custom baseline:

1 - Run Embird and click "Editor" menu to switch to Editor window.

2 - Select "Insert -> Studio of Sfumato Design" menu to launch the Embird Studio plug-in (Picture No. 1).
