    New to this forum and plasma cutting. I'm in the process of making some signs and I have typed up a sign using one of the fonts in my CAD program.
    My issue is that when I convert the Text to Graphics then enlarge to edit nodes, the script is so distorted that I have to edit every letter in the sign. This is a cursive font. Since there are about 50 words the editing in the form will take HOURS!

    Is there a step I can take that will fix the script in one step? Or any other steps I can take to make the editing process faster?
    I've searched for tutorials all over but can not find anything that will help this issue.

    Can you post a screen shot of the issue? Not following on why it's distorting. Are you editing to connect the letters to each other?

    Id be interested to see which FONT you are using. Doing a TEXT TO GRAPHICS shouldn't change the appearance of the font or change its properties at all. Save a CDL with the font and text BEFORE the text to graphics and a line with it after TEXT TO GRAPHICS and send it over. Id love to look at it.
