Fixed width text

I recently purchased some .20" width neon LED light rope and would like to make a neon sign.

I am wondering if there is a way to “set” the width of the text in easel.

what I would like to do is cut a cursive path that I would then glue the rope light into but I see that the text in easel (especially the cursive I would like to use) may differ in width from letter to letter.

I was wondering if there was any way to “set” the width of the letters so that the whole thing could be carved at .75" giving me a clear path to set the rope light in.

thanks for any help

to answer the initial question head on: No there is not a method to do this within easel.

In fact doing it with a graphics software isn’t even an easy task. You will need a “Single Line Font” that happens to be in that cursive writing and use the exact diameter bit to achieve the desired width.

that’s what I was afraid of.

thank you for the quick response
