    counters in outline type


      I apologize if this has been covered but I can't find any discussion of this question. I am using Illustrator CS2; I have a page of outline shapes of a type font. I don't know, or can't remember if the outline letters were converted using the Outline Type option or Streamline or what. In older versions of Illustration, I recall that to make a counter transparent, there was a simple menu command that reversed the direction of the path and that knocked out the counter from the shape of, for example a cap R (see attachment). I am completely buffaloed in trying to achieve this effect in CS2. I must be missing something.

      Thanks for any help.
