I'm trying to fill around text

I have a box with another box inside. The inside box has outlined text. I want to fill the inside box but leave the text. I’ve been through the forum and couldn’t find anything about that.

Thanks for any help,

This should help:

I think that fixed the issue. I just shut down my laser and tomorrow is a long day at the Moffitt Cancer Center (My wife). I will try a burn Tuesday and see what happens.

Thank you for your help,

Im having the same problem, and I don’t quite understand your solution. I have a ying yang symbol and I cannot fill one side without also filling the circle imbedded in that side.

To do that, you’d need to make one side a closed teardrop shape, and the other side would just be a line, like this:

I think I am trying the same thing and have never had a problem with this. As you can see from the pics, I just want the inside of the letters to remain blank (thus drew a line), the outside I want filled. I am confused as how to override the middles.


Make them green, so they become holes in the green layer, instead of additional cuts. This post illustrates this well:
