    Default Filling Text

    Hi - is it possible to fill text with a bitmap - to save money on printing costs I like to fill some text with a bitmap gold shimmer (cheaper than using foil)

    Sure. Drag the relevant bitmap into the drawing.

    Then select text ... FILL > BITMAP and select the relevant bitmap from the dropdown selection. You can then delete the original bitmap. It will stay in the fill gallery.

    Working from memory. May vary slightly.

    As Keith suggests.

    1. Find a gold bitmap and drag it onto the page or import it. This places a copy in the Bitmap Gallery.
    2. Select your text.
    3. In the Bitmap Gallery, select the gold bitmap, then click FILL.
