Bug Description

The conversion of text in path is very useful, but sometimes we need more details and it is not possible in only one path element.

The conversion can represent font-* changes because it changes only the drawing path, but we can have a text with color, opacity and other attributes changed inside. Please, see the attached image file for an example.

It may be simple to separate the text by hand and convert all separated in paths but it is not true in real works, and is not possible when we make a box of text or text inside a frame. The hard work will be separate the path and edit all pieces.

The text to path method may create one path for each tspan and the style will be protected. That can do a union with paths with the same style. All remained paths may be joined in a group with the original text id.

Is very very important to provide a good conversion on exporting, because the "convert text to path" option will perform a automatic conversion where some informations may be lost.

Thanks!
