    I am wondering if it is possible to have the text in my logo transparent? I am doing a Yellow Pages advertisement and need my logo to be Black and White. (Black & Yellow). I am looking for a way to make all the text transparent and just have a outline around the text. Is this possible? Any suggestions? Greatly appreciated.

    Thanks

    budspud, to make text color disappear make it and your background the same color and when you export it...use the eyedropper to remove that color or you can make it white and remove that...

    Under the EXPORT menu, choose - "more export options..."
    Choose the Transparent Gif button. Your cursor will change to an eye dropper.
    Click on the color in your logo that you want to be transparent.

    Turn your diamond into black (left click to select-->color--> colorize)
    Type your tekst. Change color to a yellow (select-->outline--> toggle outline on/off)
    Change background color into the same yellow (right click-->set background color)
    Or am i totally missing something here?

    How about sharing with the forum members, how you would sort it for him, i'm sure we all could learn from it.

    Excellent workaround Katie.

    I would have said to create the outline of the thickness, color and size of choice then use the opacity slider to fade out the color of the font.
