Re: Sure Cuts A Lot Update 1.015

The free trial version of DS will only cut with George, or Plantin Schoolbook. The firmware update is not a limited time thing though - it actually updates your machine. Once you have updated your firmware, you can keep the DS trial version or delete it; it is not needed to run SCAL. If you recently...

This opens up a window showing the font in several sizes. THEN I open up scal, and the font is listed in the fonts availa...
