I am working on Mac Lion, with the latest Type Tool. I am trying to create a font of symbols by drawing them in Illustrator, since it is familiar to me, and then copying and pasting into Type Tool. On symbols that have open areas, this is not working.
The first image I'm attaching shows the symbol as I've drawn it in Illustrator. This is how it should look.
The second image is what it looks like when I paste it into TypeTool, with everything black. If I correct the path direction, one of the inner areas will empty, as shown in image #3.
I also tried just drawing the symbol in Type Tool, but when I do that, the horizontal bar across the middle has a white outline where it crosses the triangle, as in #4.
I'd really appreciate some help with this, as this program is really not intuitive, and the manual doesn't cover what I need to know.
