Cutting Oulined words

Recommended Posts

Guest Cyssyy

Can someone please help explain to me how I can cut out words that are outlined without it being the entire letter cut out? If that makes sense.

I've attached a picture trying to explain what I'm talking about, and it also shows what my outline tool looks like.

Thank you for the help in advanced!

Yes, like that, thank you! that's what i had before i moved the two layers apart from eachother. But I just cant figure out how to cut out just the outline itself. When I try to cut it out, it cuts as whole letters. Rather than a black outline that i can layer around the red letters after theyre cut out. If that makes any sense. lol

I'm not sure what the function is called in VM, but you want to delete the individual node that make up the interior of the letters "e, a, g"  (I know you don't use Sign Blazer, but in that applications, it's called Node Edit).

Just uncheck the box that says "Keep Holes".

This will give you just an outline of the letters without the inside holes.  

Nice feature!
