Still the same problem I mentioned below and in addition, the longer the text paragraph the smaller the resulting font.

I've included a radius text field in the new version to assist in preventing text from being clipped. If your text is getting clipped, try increasing the radius, then cropping any extra whitespace (well, transparent space) from around the resultant image once you have all font flourishes/ascenders/descenders/etc. inside the bounding box of the image. With regard to the size changing, I'm not seeing that, so if you wouldn't mind contacting me to help work through that, I'd most appreciate it. Thanks! Cheers, Andrew Merenbach

Could be useful but copies only part of the text.
