Depending on the type of project, there are few ways to start a new lettering project. User can start a blank project with no background (can add it later) or open the existing image that will be used as background for lettering.
Blank project is created by accessing File menu and choosing New (shortcut key Ctrl + N). Additional options are available through New submenu.
New submenu offers three additional options: Blank project same function as New options from the File menu, creates blank drawing. Project with image option will create new blank image, but will ask user to load the background image. Lettering project option will create blank drawing and immediately activate lettering mode.
Step 1: Click File => New => Project with Image. Open image dialog will appear. Locate Threads installation folder (C:/Program Files/Threads/example files/). Scroll for the Threads_Logo.jpg and click Open.
Step 2: Activate lettering mode. Step 3: Click the left mouse click where T letter starts to set base point for the text.
Step 4: Activate the Left Align option so all of your text changes happen from left to right. Step 5: Type Threads inside the drawing window or in text box on the toolbar.
Step 6: Choose the font that is similar to the one in picture (or the one you like) and adjust its size. It might take a few tries to guess the exact size. (example: Bemio font, size 70). Step 7: You can see the font width needs shrinking. Activate the toolbar Letter Width setting adjust the value so it fits. (example: 70.00).
Step 8: Adjust spacing between letters (example: 3.50) Step 9:Press Enter key or Set letters on the toolbar to accept the changes.
