Hello I created a logo in photoshop how I wanted it, but I need to create it in illustrator. The problem is, I've never used illustrator before, and am having a little trouble. Here is what I need to re-create: I can get the text how I want it, but I am having problems with the white stroke around "KSPEC". I have the red "K" and the black "SPEC" as two seperate text layers (couldnt figure out how to merge them to one). Whenver I apply a stroke in illustrator, it applies the stroke to each layer seperately, so there is a white line all around "SPEC" seperating it from the "K" - which is what I dont want. I want the white stroke to go around both layers as if they were only one. I've tried to figure this out for the past two days and cannot do it lol. I'm sure its easy, I'm just boggled as how to do it. Any help is *greatly* appreciated! Thanks in advance!
