    Problem with OPERATIONS and Font Scripts

    Thank You!! Thank You!!! Thank You!!!! I see others have offered an alternate solution, but since I am not very clear about what it is just by reading it (That's always my problem, I need a visual/video) I will use your method Isabel :-) I am super happy and thankful to you Isabel for doing this :-) I think I could listen to you read the ingredients off of a cereal box LOL, you have a voice that is very easy on the Ears, Affinity should pay you to do all of their Tutorials :-) Thanks TO ALL of you who have offered contributions, tips, and solutions on this thread!!!! Greatly appreciative of this wonderful Illustration Affinity Community !!!!!! Happy Creating Guys!!!

    Problem with OPERATIONS and Font Scripts

    Once you convert the Text to Vector it will revert to the same problem of an overlapping stroke. It's fine if you leave it as text but once you hit (Ctrl Enter) to convert it to (Curves) you get ....

    Not to worry my friend I actually have forwarded this thread to a person on youtube that does a lot of Affinity tutorials, her name is Isabel, I am waiting on a reply from her as we speak and hopefully she'll be up for the task. As soon as I hear from her I'll let all within this thread know with a post. Thank you again for your input and contributions to this topic. Much Appreciated!

    Problem with OPERATIONS and Font Scripts

    No apologies necessary RC, I do a ton of lettering in both printing and embroidering, so I know that this thread will come in handy again and again. I am a huge fan of a going over material even if I think I may know it already, the possibility that I may have missed something is very high. I thank you for being thorough. You are clearly great at being very detailed in your explanation and I urge you to do a video because based upon the responses within this thread there is a real need for it. The problem for me as an artist I am a visual and an auditory learner. Once you go beyond 3 steps in the written form I start to get a bit overwhelmed and can lose track of where I was and where I need to go. So 85% of the time I am going to get the full understanding from a youtube clip coupled with the written. It's just how I have always learned. So please do consider a youtube video RC :-) Thank You!

    Problem with OPERATIONS and Font Scripts

    Exactly, I def see this guys issue, unfortunately the issues for me begin when you add a stroke. The Stroke will be visible on the neighboring letter instead of the stroke finding the outer most line of the scripted text. I hopefully have found the solution as I have described above with the using "erase" in Blend mode.

    No Owen, It just stroked the individual letters and they overlapped each other, that wasn't the look I was going for. I liked your instructions for how they sounded, simple. Unfortunately, the didn't get the desired effect in the end.

    Sorry Bud, here is what I used from you, "Alternatively, ungroup the group and 'Divide', which will give you separate shapes for the "holes"." At that point I just found the holes or loops and selected them, then I went to the blend mode and chose "Erase" and it Worked

    Tried it, loved the simplicity of it but just did not work for me, if you actually can get this shortcut to work please make a video. So far using the technique described by Alfred plus using the blend mode and selecting "Erase" has been the only method that has personally worked for me.

    Problem with OPERATIONS and Font Scripts

    I got lost about half way through this one Alfred but I remembered that I can use the Blend Mode and Select "Erase" where the holes are and that did the trick!!! YAY! Thank You Gentlemen for your assistance!

    Problem with OPERATIONS and Font Scripts

    I have attempted this but when I convert to curves there are no "holes" separate from the letters, there are only letters.

    Problem with OPERATIONS and Font Scripts

    Is there not a way to just "tear" a hole into the "D A L" and just create new loops? For example, in PS I can just hold down the ALT key to drag an elliptical object to create a negative space in the existing vector object. Do we not possess a similar short cut in AD? Thanks Guys!
  13. I have a script with several letters that I need to combine and then stroke, I must combine them or else the stroke is overlapping other letters and does not achieve the desired effect. The problem I am having when Combining or Adding from the OPERATIONS tools the center of the Loops in the letters aren't being knocked out, except for the "o" in the word "Lord". I am stuck and I can not figure out what I am doing wrong. Please Help :-) Thank You! Please take a look at the screenshots below...
  14. Excellent! Looking Forward To it's inclusion!
  15. That's interesting, Can you point me to where I can find the 'Convert Pixel selection to Vector shape' feature in AD, thank you :-)
