    Using Flexi 10 - Please take a look at this photo:

    Do you see the yellow outline around my text?

    I have not applied any type of outline or effect to my text, but for some reason I keep getting these strange outlines at random on my fonts. It doesn't show up as a color in my production manager ... just on my design file.

    Has anyone else experienced this issue? Do you know how to resolve it?

    Thanks in advance!

    In fill/stroke editor click on stroke button. Directly below that is a drop down box. When you click on it your colors will show. Pick transparent and the outline color will disappear.

    While that will make the existing stroke transparent, the stroke is technically still there. I would instead suggest pushing the "Clear" button which will eliminate the stroke rather than changing it's color.

    Good point but not sure if it matters most of the time. I've never had a problem cutting vinyl of printing anything using this method.
