Summary0002238: Free Text Tool Requested

As long time Corel Draw user and about to migrate the last windows machine to linux I would like to request a additional free text tool (text writing without
a text frame) which is, to my mind, important to create stretcheable headlines and others.
TagsNo tags attached.

We need to be careful not to become the "kitchen sink" or try to do things better done by other tools such as Inkscape. That said, this sounds fairly reasonable. You can already get "free text" to an extent by creating a text frame with the desired text and converting to outlines.
