…yes, there really are one thousand instances of “Danke!” on the board. :wink:

Btw, although I routinely use Illustrator or Affinity Design, there are occasions when Word or Powerpoint are good 'nuf. In this case, I created a blank slide in PPT, added a text block (cut & paste along with the "word count’ tool were really useful at this point), then added a “Word Art” block on top. Exported as both PDF and PNG. Done. Could I have done this in AI, AD, Inkscape, etc? Sure. :wink:

Btw, I ended up using the PNG as it processed very quickly. The PDF still had all 1,002 words as text glyphs, so was taking a long time to process.
