Hi, I just purchased some fonts that aren’t supported by glowforge. I ready their instructions for using inkscape and changing the path to “object to path” however this causes each letter to be cut individually, instead of the cursive running together creating one piece for the whole word. Can anyone help me figure out how to change this?
When you do that while everything is still selected you will want Path > Combine and not Union as inside loops will disappear with Union but still work with Combine. There is also a new widget that one is filled in and one on the right of it is not. You want the one on the right not filling everything.
Thank you all for your help! I’m still having a bit of trouble. This Object to Path, Group, Union worked for my first word (Mama)… but the second (Dada) won’t union for the life of me. It says, “One of the objects is not a path, cannot perform boolean operation”. I’m confused because the M in Mama is separate from the other letters, so I’m not sure what the issue is with Dada (where the letters are actually all connected). Thanks again
