Flexi - LXi Outline Welding Help Issue Please

    I have a font that does NOT come in bold.

    So to bold the font in Flexi/LXi I added a slight outline. When I attempt to compound or weld ... it just does not happen no matter what I do.

    Fred suggested I creation the font to outlines and then add the outline and weld the two together with the same color. I tried that and no luck.

    I need the outline welded because I prefer to not have the outline show in the cut vinyl.

    I have attached a picture of what I mean. Anyone familiar with this welding procedure? There has to be a way. I weld objects all the time, just not fonts.

    Thanks .......... ~M

    after you make the outline...go to effects and seperate the outlines, then delete the letters, keeping the outline
