I want to create a transparent text on a circle with inkscape.

I managed to create a circle with a color, created a text and converted it into an object, and resized canvas to drawing.

Thats my result:

enter image description here

However, I would like to make the text transparent. So that the color from the text in the circle, is identical to the background color where the svg is used.

If I make the text transparent, I get of course only a blank circle.

Is there an option to cut the text out of the circle or something like that?

I found a way.

Select Circle + Text and then click on Path->Difference
