I have a font called Stoney Billy (Schoolhouse Rock?)
I'd like to make the background of the text yellow.
I tried a few different things in Illustrator but couldn't figure out how to make it work.
I ended up using PS, rasterizing the text, and using the paintbucket tool to fill each section between the black lines individually. (I also can't figure out why the yellow is partially transparent but that's a different problem)
This is just an example. I have a lot of text I need to do this to. Is there an easier/quicker way to fill the text with color while leaving the black text outline?
