DrawFX – the text tool

It hasn’t be an easy task to add a text tool, but I finally did it. The tool is actually a simple text area (with some customization for hiding the scroll bars) placed into a panel with some buttons (valid and cancel). The tool is not draggable and has the following options:
– Bold
– Italic
– Underline (a bit tricky to make that one work. A solution is proposed here but I used something else)
– Size for the text
– Change the font by using fonts on your system

It is also possible to resize the text area by simply drag the mouse anywhere. Below is a little demo.
