Type what you want
Highlight whole word
Click Break Path
Click on one circle and in the top tool bar you will see the dimensions of the circle
Highlight whole word again
Place cursor in upper left corner of the box surrounding the word and stretch the whole box..
Click on one circle and check dimensions...
keep doing this until you have the size circle you need.

Hi Manny,

What program are you using?

What fonts are you struggling with?

For ss10 stones, I make sure that my diameter is .127" for the circles. Each font is predesigned to be a certain height for use with ss10 stones.

Basically Paula above me laid out how we size the text to ensure the correct stone size.

IN the video linked to above it shows exactly how to easily do it without guessing in CorelDRAW

Here is the link again...

Using TTF Rhinestone Fonts in CorelDRAW - YouTube

That said .127 that Stephanie uses is not "THE" hole size... What you really should do is determine what hole size works best for the stones you are using... Any font could be used for ss6 or ss10 stones and each will have their own hole size... I've even seen different holes sizes depending on the template material being used...

I personally use .13 for my hole size or 3.3mm...

Hi Manny,

Here is a link to a document that may help you out. You can jump to page 4 since the first few pages relate to installing the fonts in OOBling. It gives you the basic idea of resizing the font to achieve the rhinestone size you need. In Corel, it should be the same process, except for the part where it says to "replace with rhinestones."
