Thicker letters

Post by beckyv »

I have a font that I made the letters thicker but now have lost the center of like the letter h, l and e. Is there a way to get the centers back but, still have the letters thicker? Thanks in advance for any help.

There is a video on youtube from Jen Blausey on how to do the thicker letters. If you do a youtube search for the following you should find it:

She makes inaccurat SCAL videos, thus I wouldn't trust anything she shows.

Here's a method typically used for thickening letters. Type the text. Select the text. Go to Path>Offset Path and enter a very small Offset size, such as 0.005". It doesn't take much. This is from the SCAL User Manual:
