I barely use illustrator but it is the only other software I have and i need to get this school font cut the soonest.... i have wasted lots of time already.

Try doing the text you need in Illustrator, converting it to outlines. And then save it as an .eps you can load in WinPCSign.

Now that I think about it, saving it as an .eps should make it outlines anyway.

But thats just my quick suggestion.

DJ is corrct in his first statement. I do think you should convert to outlines first, this is done by selecting the text after everything is typeset correctly, spellchecked, kerned & whatever other type related modifications may need to be applied (bold, italic etc.) ... then the pull-down "type" menu will show "create outlines". It is often wise to take this step on a copy of the file "saved as" some other filename, so you also still have one with the text intact
