So has anyone figured out a workaround where you can generate vector text in Draw? I don't have Illustrator, so I don't have any way to add the required text to my project.
Is there an all-iPad solution where I can generate the text I need and bring it in on a layer and still be vector?
And, I hope Adobe is listening... we need text, and ability to either deform it or place along a path.
Yep. We do get occasional requests to include text functionality in Draw but I don't know what the plan is for incorporating it into the app. I'll definitely share your request with the product team.
In the meantime have you tried using Capture? I'm not sure how much text you're wanting to use, but you can save text as an image, bring it into Capture and save it as a shape, and bring that into a a Draw Layer in Draw (it will create a scalable graphic).
How much text are you wanting to bring in to your Draw composition?
