Hi Paul,

 

If you're stuck with the font used, then you would need to add a bar that crosses [joins] the internal part to the outer, for each instance....otherwise you can use the "Stencil" font that has this method built-in.

It is a PAIN to try and use a nice font, then convert it to geometry so you can add your own webs to letters.

Especially painful when you need to edit the text, and the webs all fall appart....but, it's still the only way forward with non-stencil font types. *SIGH
