Inkscape Extension: Text from CSV

Published › April 30, 2012 0 Comments


Extension to enter text from a CSV file.

Here is an extension to place text on a drawing from a csv file. This is useful if you want to plot map data etc.

A csv file is needed with 3 columns – x position, y position and text (in that order). The csv file needs to have the fields separated by commas

Copy the two files into your Inkscape extension folder: Usually C:\Program Files\Inkscape\share\extensions.

The extension will be under extensions/text/Text from CSV.

You can change the font size. Also you can choose the plot origin
Bottom – This would plot you data as if the axes origin is in the bottom left corner like a standard graph
Middle – If you are plotting geographical data, co-ordinates of latitude start at 0 on the equator.
