I am using Affinity Designer to create an SVG file that consists of just text. I am essentially trying to create a birthday card by cutting out the text from the front flap. Because I’m not using a stencil font, I am trying to “stencilize” the text by creating white lines to erase parts of the font that connect so that there is no material that is complete surrounded (like O’s and A’s). However, if I export this as SVG and import into GFUI, it sees the white lines as a separate item and will still cut the font out and the surrounded material will fly away. If I flatten the layers by using Rasterize, then GFUI won’t allow me to use the Cut function.
Is there another way to accomplish this goal?
