    I have Flexi 7.6 Expert. My delemma: Red Type with a black outline. How can I make the black outline solid so I can layer vinyl over the top? I went to effects > separate outlines, then welded them together. What it does is welds but leaves a lot of cut lines.

    type your red text. With text selected, go to effects>outline. Mouse over design central, choose color & choose with backing. Hit check mark to commit. Then go back to effects> separate outline.

    See attached pic.

    Step 1 - Make your text
    Step 2 - Click on the outline tool
    Step 3 - Set your outline size and click the option where the arrow is
    Step 5 - Select the text - Right Click and click Separate Outline
    Step 5 - Select the red text and drag to the side - you should have a solid black outline

    I hope this is what you were looking for
