I'm trying to create a set of vector letters from lettering that I have scanned in. An example is shown here:
I scanned the letters in groups of 4 instead of the whole page, but doing the whole page might be faster if breaking the letters apart is faster.
In Inkscape, I've opened the scanned image and used the
Path > Trace Bitmap tool. When I try to use Break Apart, I get a solid fill on the letter counters. I can delete those, but then I end up with two paths for each letter.
Is there a a better way to do this? Help from professional typographers welcome... although I realize that most don't use Inkscape.
