I'm looking to make a sign like this and I haven't learned the software well enough to know how to do it. Can anyone point me to a tutorial on how to do it or make this for me?

Thanks for your time!

What words do you want to use?

You use the tracking up/down buttons on the side after you type the text, or just pull out with the bottom handle on the selection box.

Is there anyway you would make this as a svg file - for some reason I'm not able to open a SCUT?
Thanks - sorry I'm such a pain!

Okay, I feel really stupid :oops: - I figured it out - thank you so much! I'm just stressed about making this for a gift and haven't used the software for a few months.

Thanks again! :D

Even easier, just type your three lines separately then adjust the width of each line so that they are all the same width. It looks like the words are three different heights, so I would keep proportions on this unless you don't like how it looks. Select all of the lines then use the alignment tools in the Position/Size window.

ETA: I didn't like how Ariel Black looked, so I stretched it out vertically after setting the width.
