Adding holes to a font?


I already have a font that I’d like to modify. I’d like to add little holes to it but using the eraser function in the edit panel won’t make a hole in it.

I spent all afternoon copying letter by letter to make the font entirely but the spacing is all off and I have no idea how to fix it. The first option I’m sure is easier, if I’m able to do it.

Please let me know. Thanks!

You don’t need to copy the glyphs one by one. Just save the original font under a new name.

Holes are made by adding smaller paths with a different path direction than the main path. This tutorial explains it:
