File Types that eCal P2C supports?

Can someone please tell me what file types the Print to Cut feature on eCal supports? I assumed it supported all that SCAL2 had supported, but the features list on Craft Edge doesn't list them specifically, and I'm not finding it in my Help menu in eCal, either.
Thanks!

Re: Help is anyone getting cut line across the cardstock

I Just got the Eclips and ecal it is (register) for Christmas . I was wondering if anyone has has the problem of the blade draging across the paper at the end. I have talked to craft edge and they seem to think it is the the setting for the card stock. I just got in touch with sizzix by phone. They...

Re: Misaligned cutting

Cheryl, I've been trying P2C, and have failed miserably. I have contacted Craftedge for support. Just wondered how this works. When you start, do you just open your jpg onto the eCAL mat? I tried that, and did the restration marks and it printed fine. Then I put on the mat board, and set the regist...

Re: Misaligned cutting & P2C

Update for those following this thread: Todd suggested the following steps for P2C: 1. Once you have your image on the mat, and the shadow created for it, select the Shadow layer and change both the Fill and Stroke drop down boxes to "None" (these are located in the Appearance window of SCAL, beneat...

Re: Misaligned cutting

Todd is on the case! :0) Thanks, everyone! Thanks for the compliments, too. I ended up changing some things about the file to make it easier to assemble, and that will be available on my blog on Friday for free, but only for a week. The file I have a pic of had some design issues, but weren't the pr...

Misaligned cutting

I created my own svg, a gatefold card, which looks fine on the screen - nice and centered scrollwork on the "gates" and arch. When it cuts, though, the cut lines on the gate scrolls are not lined up properly. I've attached some pics to give a visual. I am wondering, after having the issue with the P...

Re: eCal Print2Cut :0(

Check your version of eCAL. Some members got 1.000, and the latest on the CE download is 1.001. I may not solve your P2C but you for sure will be better off with 1.001. I'm already on 1.001. I updated when I first installed. Also, my laser preview looked pretty darned close, too, but the cut didn't...

Re: eCal Print2Cut :0(

You will probably need to calibrate the laser. There is a calibration option under the Cutter menu. I have done that now, thanks for pointing me to the right place for it, but it is still not working, It still comes up with the cut the same as my pic shows of my final cut in my first post in this t...

eCal Print2Cut :0(

I've been playing with the print2cut, and am not at all happy with the performance. One of the reasons I purchased, and waited!, for the ecal was that it was to have a better P2C performance than past SCAL2 (which never seemed to work right.....for me, anyhow!). I am hoping this info makes some sens...
