    Help Please

    I designed a Christmas ornament and during that process I had to convert the design to an object so I could use the eraser feature as the virtual delete tool was not working right. It would take out more then what was needed.
    Anyway when I cut the design it cuts it twice, once for the hairline design and again for the object. I don't know how to get rid of the object part of it. Can anyone tell me how. Thanks

    In over 20 years I've never had the need to convert a drawing to an object but if you post the drawing I'm sure we'll figure a way.

    Here you go. I used the virtual segment delete to remove the second pass.

    I could see that there was two outlines, tried to just do smart fill, but it left odd tabs at overlap. Then just selected item and then clicked on the VS delete and used it to delete parts. Had to do about 7-8 separate deletes. If you snuck up on segment from above or from side, you could select only one pass.

    Virtual delete wouldn't work for me kept taking out more then what I needed making it un usable thats why I made it an object to use the eraser which will not work with curves

    I decided to re-draw it but got way-layed by some orders. I had planned to fit text to a path for the AZ and change the size of the "9" in 2019. At that point I would have used weld on all the text.

    I don't know if that would have achieved your objective but that was my plan.

    Bert,

    I cleaned it up so that it would hold together better. Kept the gaps and lengths to be about 0.050" The "9" is somewhat problematic, so use it if you want.
