How to make the inside of a word look like a picture

    We have Omega version 2.02
    I am trying to put a background image inside of some text
    and print on the gerber. The image also has to print on clear vinyl (reversed)

    How would I go about doing this? I know you can use the
    Power Clip tool in Corel, but is there such a feature in Omega??

    I know under TOOLS you can do some things with DISTORTION but I don't
    think this can be done with this method.

    I would assume you would make the wording change to curves.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated!!!!

    It's really much easier than all that.

    • Open your image in a workspace.
    • Set your text with no fill or stroke
    • Assign both the image and the text to be on clear vinyl
    • Press F8 to preview the job
    • Output to GSPPlot
    • In GSPPlot open the 123 dialog and assign a "basecoat white" and reverse the print order
    • In GSPPlot reverse the image
    You should be good to go. there are other ways to do this but this is the easiest.
