    Hi Todd!

    Well you stumped me with this one ... blur, yellow ball, & orange yellow text in Corporate 2 ...

    Could you post the sample? I couldn't find anything that matched that description, and when I checked TLC's fonts, I didn't find Sandoval. Was that the font in the sample? Or is that one you found in System fonts?

    Also, are you on a PC or Mac? That'll help me, especially if Sandoval is a System Font. System fonts are the ones that are in your word processor as opposed to a TLC font. They all should work, but it'll help to know what you started with.

    Thanks,
    flot

    P.S. Welcome to the forum! :)

    Well that's most interesting! ... When I load that sample, the text changes from the font that's showing (in the sample - same as your thumbnail, Cybrnetico) to Arial! I'll have to ask Marc about that. Unfortunately, as a result I can offer no suggestions since I don't apparently have it. !?! Curious!

    Do you have trouble with that font? Perhaps you can help Todd out?

    Thanks,
    flot

    Outline option

    export the logo as a jpg and try to post it here to see where the problem is. It might be the outline around the font that causes the jagged look.

    Or what you might do...is to take the text to its largest stage before it gets jagged, do an export and then import it back increase the size of the imported element.

    The only time I have seen problems with fonts and font effects is when my resources were stretched too thin.

    You could also see if you have better luck with downloading Sandoval and installing it to your systems font folder.http://www.1001fonts.com/font_details.html?font_id=1153
