    Try doing the text you need in Illustrator, converting it to outlines. And then save it as an .eps you can load in WinPCSign.

    Now that I think about it, saving it as an .eps should make it outlines anyway.

    But thats just my quick suggestion.

    DJ is corrct in his first statement. I do think you should convert to outlines first, this is done by selecting the text after everything is typeset correctly, spellchecked, kerned & whatever other type related modifications may need to be applied (bold, italic etc.) ... then the pull-down "type" menu will show "create outlines". It is often wise to take this step on a copy of the file "saved as" some other filename, so you also still have one with the text intact
