Adjusting spline interpolation

Moving on to adjust the level of detail for my Bevel object, I can play around with the number of segments here and increase the level of detail in the depth of the object. But I don't have any controls within the Bevel to add more segments along the outline of the text. So, what I need to do here is I need to go into the spline object and adjust its Interpolation settings. This is valid for any spline object or any shape, whether it's a circle or text or edible spline.

So in this case, I'm going to go to the Text object and you'll see I've got the Interpolation rollout open here. We've got the number of steps. What this actually translates into at the end of the day is the number of polygon edges between two points on an individual spline. So, between two points on the spline there are actually sub-segments, and this is where I get to control the number of sub-segments. So, as I increase this, you will see especially in the curved areas it's starting to give me m...
