connect the dots

I'm working on a number of connect the dots and am trying to 'burn' in the point numbers so I wouldn't have to manually add them later. Any thoughts?

    Create a "range" node between 1 and the number of dots + 1. Round them off (so you have integers instead of floating point values) and use those as the text input for a text path node.

    I've included an example that shows this.



    PS Sorry for the extremely late reply.

    Hey Frederik, I tried opening this file but it gave a "too new" error. I have the latest version found on download page.

    Hi Ruth, I noticed that but... if you edit the ndbx file (with notepad or something similar) right in the beginning you'll find:

    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" standalone="no"?>
    <ndbx formatVersion="20"

    replace that "20" with "18" and, tada!
