path out of a selection
on Aug 27, 2007 at 2:26:09 pm

hi everybody,

i have a typo on a transparent background here and need a scalable vector out of the outlines but i don't now how to do this.
I select each Character with the tool (don't know the name, the one which recognizes the same color, looking like a magic something, you know what, right?). This gives me a selection and need the button to say something like: 'make a path out of the selection outline'

how to do? thx Gunnar

ok, I found the 'make workpath' button, but the shape is only close to the original. You cant really use it ( In my case I want to create a scaleable typografie out of a merged picture.

no way to do this?
