Hello I wonder if anyone knows of a font outline type where the infilled space is white. I need something like this to go over a multicoloured background and have searched hundreds of font pages. An alternative answer might be to infill an existing font style if someone could explain how to do this. Thanks
Just thinking again, Smokeyone, it might be tricky to do it. Someone on the forum had a font creating program, Pesala (I think), it might be a far better option. Try a search of the forum for mention of it, it wasn't that long ago, within the last two months I think.
That seems a brilliant idea but would assume you would still only have a black font.My problem is that the multicoloured background shows through an outline font and though it is easier to read than a solid font it's still not perfect. Really I am looking for a white font with a black outline but maybe it's not possible in a TT file.
I may be muddying the waters but I am trying to work out what the end product looks like. I assume that you are printing the background and text. Using Serif PagePlus X3 I can choose a font like Cooper Black insert it over a colured background then I change the font colour to white and the change the line of the text to black and I end up with white outline text on a coloured background.
Thank you for trying to assist but if you wished to over write images would it still work... That's the problem I have - black does not show up well, white is very slightly better but not much, grey a bit better, outline is best but if such a thing exists, black outline with a white infill - not transparent. I could work around the problem by having the text in different parts of the image - re different images - depending upon the background but it would be better to keep the text in the same place on each image. A font file would be the easiest option - cannot really hand colour dozens of words...
Not sure exactly what you are after but looking through the fonts in Inkscape Gazzerelli is a white font with a black outline Google gives click here as a download site Or you may find something else there - sorry if this is way off beam
