What if you use it for the font using the obsolete text effect on a solid?

just went I try to use the font.
hi and thanks for sharing. indeed seems the best way is to create vector shapes in illustrator. I reached out to the company and that was the suggestion although that did mention "customs fonts can be problematic"
