I've been try to work with a font called Jenna with my text tool. Problem is any letter such as a P,O,B does not show a hole. I've tried dragging points no luck. I've selected the inner polygon and tried to delete but to no avail. It only erases the inner line making the polygon. Any suggestions?

It's the outer poly that doesn't have a hole. Select the front face and delete it. Make a new front and your good to go.

Can you post POB and then we can have a look at it?

Cut the "holes" and paste them into a new layer and then use Drill (shift R) to tunnel them out.

Out of curiosity, if you make the text in Illustrator then import the .ai file, do you get the same problem?
