I would like to create a number bubble that is filled solid with a clear outline number in it. I'm using the WQY-Unicode font for my numbers. I inserted the number on the screen, then drew a circle around it. I tried drawing a polyline around the outline of the number, then leading over to and around the circumference of the circle. The Hatch command got totally confused with that boundary. Then, I split the number and the circle onto 2 different layers. I filled the circle solid and assigned a hatch to the outline number that wouldn't have anything in it at that scale. I came out with a solid blob. Any help? How can I chop a hole in the middle of a solid fill?
Nope, that didn’t work. I still ended up with a solid blob.
First, I had the number and the bubble on the same layer (“text”). So, I tried separating the number and the bubble on separate layers and rerunning the Hatch. When I looked at the separate layers, the bubble is filled solid but the number is not.
I have :

First explode the number. Then, using the Hatch command, select the circle and the exploded number with a window.
If you do this with the number 8 for example, the hatch command will fill the region between the circumference of the circle and the outer contour of the 8 and also the two holes inside the 8.
