I dont know if im missing something really obvious here but ive forgotten how to do this. I have a oval shape that i want to fill in except for the text i have inside of the oval. no matter how i go about this the preview shows the oval is completely filled in and that there is no text.
Make the text the same colour/layer as the oval, that should do it
The fill of a shape is determined by the boundaries of that shape and acts as an ON / Off toggle as shown in the following post. With this reminder, building shapes and text to produce as you’d like will become second nature.
thanx guys. your help is much appreciated.
