Need expert help...Tricky technique.
« on: April 07, 2011, 08:16:38 AM »
Okay I'm pulling my hair out here. I might be over thinking this...not sure anymore :lol:  :lol:  I am trying to do a file with an welded outline to it...like this example that Nichol Magouirk frequently uses here
http://nicholmagouirk.typepad.com/.a/6a ... 970c-800wi
I want my letters in my title welded and I want the outline welded (I am using Studio as I can get an internal offset) I have tried to weld the outside and the internal offset but when I do that the insides disappear (clear as mud?)
 I have tried messing with  this so much this morning I am confusing myself. :lol:  :lol:
Can anyone shed some light on how this works? I would prefer to work in studio if it's possible...I just find it less confusing than inkscape (sorry I do realize this is an inkscape board but I'm not all that technical so I have a hard time in inkscape)
TIA for any help you can provide! I would really like to master this for my title it's for my DD's birth.
Thanks,
Dolly

Hi Dolly

Send you an email, because I'm not sure of the effect that you are trying to achieve; but I don't mind having a go and it might be something I can translate into an Inkscape tuts as well.

I am sure if you come and join Uk Scrappers we have all the info over there and it won't have to be copied and pasted from forum to forum then..

Plenty of  help there too. :D  24/7

Oooo I appreicate the input, I did provide Dolly with a UKS link and also was able to get a YouTube video done especially for the query that she was after; which was then posted onto the UKS forum for other users of the Silhouette Studio software..I have no desire to give Studio software information on this forum because we are lovers of Inkscape that many other cutters can use as well.....

As I have said to many Silhouette/Craft Robo users, if you know how too use Inkscape then the migration into the Studio software will be easy, because of the similar attributes....

Try setting a stroke on your titles, then use Path/Stroke to path.  You will then be able to weld the new Path that is just the original stroke.  (Clear as mud?)  Some more steps might be needed, depending on exactly what you are aiming at.  As Angel always says, "Holler" if you need more help with this.
