Cursive fonts

I'm trying to join together a cursive font but every time I try to join or weld I loose the circles inside the letters. I know there is a video on it but can't find it. Can someone help please?

    Don't join, Break them, then weld them

    As Leslie says break them and then weld the big shapes and when finished grab them and click join - now the holes will be in them again.

    If when you add text select by glyphs so you are typing individual letters from the start. Each letter is a called a glyph. So as Diana says the daughter shapes remain in tact so then you can weld them and not join them so they are one word. Bt if you do not want to retype, I should have said join the individual glyphs after breaking everything so the little centers remain intact and such look like individual letters again before welding all the glyphs together into the word you want.

    The reason you had little loops is that when 2 shapes overlap in the join you are left with empty space - weld on the other hand intersects the shape and you have one solid shape or bridge.

    No no no... you don't want to break them!  That will definitely cause you to lose the interior parts when you then weld.  What you want to do instead is either select "Split by Glyphs" when you are are still in the text entry window or... if you forget... then in the main window, select the text and apply Split.  Note that Split will not work if you've already tried to weld or tried to join.  Start over.  But then once you're letters are split, you can overlap them and apply the weld.
