Can anyone help me. Im still learning I could not find a video on Youtube and am hoping someone can help. I’m trying to attach a word to a square shape. I was told from my facebook group to convert the words to curve then select the shape and words and create compound. The create compound is greyed out. What am I doing wrong. Trying to add a video here but saying its too large. Here is a pic. Its a basic concept I’m sure but can’t get it!
I’m trying to cut it. Im sure you can do it. Ive seen projects with words cut out and attached to a frame. Here is a sample. How do you do that? I watched the tutorial of this picture but the picture was deceiving the tutorial was just to cut a name out not the circle around it.
OK…I got it. Hope I can explain it to you, now.
• I created two circles, inner and outer - stroke with no fill
• added text and put just slightly overlapping the inner circle. Converted text to curves and un-grouped them.
• highlighted all the individual curves and added them to create the ‘weld’ of cursive text
• chose the text and the inner circle and did a ‘subtract’, which creates a curve and an ellipse
When you said convert to curves and ungroup them is there a button to ungroup? Because it’s not highlighted only group is highlighted. Then when you mean weld what option is that the plus sign with the square ?
Keep ‘group’ highlighted and UN group it (command - shift- G) That will leave four individual curves like this.
Yes…weld the letters using this boolean op…farthest option to the left with the plus sign
Try putting your screen into outline mode…you’ll be able to see what’s going on. It’s on the far right here;
