    Here's sort of a riff on "hiding the character with transparency".

    Tracking in Xara is performed by highlighting a character and then increasing or decreasing the tracking value up on the Infobar. Tracking affects the space between the character you highlight with thew Text tool, and the character(s) directly to the right of the highlighted character. This can make a "locked rings" effect if two "o"s are in your text; use other character to create novel text mash-ups.

    You can also hide the two characters, create duplicates, press Ctrl+Shift+S to make the text into shapes and then add the shapes to get a different text look.

    Now you have another trick to create future logos for new clients (such as Google).

    Or not.

    My Best,

    Gary

    How would you turn the "look" example into "Bing", stygg?

    I think he means as a "title" for a search engine, Gare.

    We could change it to bingo as a search engine title as Ron pointed out. The emphasis being on the "go"

    I got it in one, guys. "Look. Google."

    It's all good.
