Hello All,

I am trying to figure out how to connect letters together for some cutouts, and I haven't a clue how to achieve this. Is there a font out there that does this as you type? I searched the archives and nothing came up.
Thanks for any help

Joe,
Convert your text to curves in Corel Draw. Break the curve apart. You should then be able to manipulate and overlap the letters as required and then use the Weld function to make them into individual curves. Hope this helps.

Here is a link to a video that shows what Larry described.

Adjust the fonts kerning:

In Corel:
Select the text tool.
Click anywhere on the page.
Set point size to 72pt (easier to see for this test).
Type "Hello".
Hit CTRL+A to select all the characters.
Hit CTRL+T to bring up the Character Formatting dialog.
Where it says "Range Kerning", adjust it so it's a NEGATIVE number.

or,

just place the letters on top of a rectangle that touches all of the letters and weld together.

Good Video! Steve does a great job. He amazes me with all the things he sends out basically for free.

Several of the script fonts connect.
