Create Icon text (MEL)

Hi,

Hope this is helpful to quickly create selectable text in Maya (put the text in quotes after the -t argument):

examples:
textCurves -ch 0 -f "Arial-Regular" -t "roll";
textCurves -ch 0 -f "Arial-Regular" -t "cheek";
textCurves -ch 0 -f "Arial-Regular" -t "narrow";

Also i'm thinking of writing a hotkey/short script that adds whatever selected (edges,faces, poly ..) to the current items in view--isolate.  This way can work on inner mouth and eye topology areas and get extruded results added to the isolated viewed items quickly.

cheers,
Nate
