    Short question, is that pointOnPath() function for expressions also available for scripting somehow? The only chance I see is by creating an layer with that expression and harvesting the result.

    And an associated question: Is it possible via expression or script to get the opposite of that pointOnPath() function. You feed in a specific Point or a vertex number of a path and get the percentage where the point sits in that path.
    I am trying to write an approximation function to achieve that, but dont really get it to work so that it doesnt fail when working with specific paths where the path intersects.

    thanks so much for any hints on that topic.
