Add fontVariation to text drawn in bezierPath?
This is kind of a follow-up question to another forumpost of mine.
I have a bezierPath where I draw a letter. After that I scale this shape to a certain size. I just can't find a way to draw the letter with using fontVariations.
(I know how to use fontVariations when I just draw text outside of a bezierPath. So the font is working.)
Any ideas on how I can do this?
I tried this (B is the bezierPath).
This doesn't work:
fontVariations(wdth = self.vw) self.B.text("E", (0, 0), fontSize=100, font='Variabletest-Thin')
Is there another syntax I should be using? I don't get any errors btw.

hi. you can use a FormattedString:
txt = FormattedString() txt.append("hello world", font='Skia', fontSize=150, fontVariations=dict(wdth=0.8, wght=1.3)) B = BezierPath() B.text(txt, (100, 100)) drawPath(B)
BezierPath.textto convert to hard outlines.
