Hello Guys,

 

Sorry for the noob question im fairly new to the application, ive been hunting around for answers but I cant seem to find what im looking for.

 

Below is an image of a contour map, I have 2 questions:

 

1.) I have added to text to illitstrate a particular peak on the map, however the the contour lines make the text hard to see. Is there a way I can add some form of stroke around the text that will hide the lays below it? Essentially any secition of line that passes under the text will stop a 2mm above the text and continue 2mm below the text.

 

2.) How would I go about cropping any sections of layers that fall outside of the circle? 

 

Thanks

Craig

1 To add a stroke around (and behind) your text; select the text with the selection arrow, add a new (white) stroke in the Appearance panel and drag it there below the characters.

Aperture,

 

Based on a different interpretation of 1) you can add a white fill in the Appearance panel and drag it beneath the Characters, then (with only that selected) use the Convert to Shape Effect with a Rectangle and Extra Width and Height of 2 mm.
