Re: Easter Bunny Box

Jan, That would be super easy to make. It looks like it is just the chocolate bunny shape with strips for sides. Probably some kind of tabs on the strips to attach to the bunny.

Re: Question re new Circuit Air2

Don't forget that the Cricut Air cutters require internet access to cut. Even the best internet goes out once in a while, and no cutting when that happens. Also, a caution if you have an older computer. Provo Craft in the past has retroactively changed system requirements to use their cloud based pr...

Re: Remove object from behind top layer

The easiest way is to select the black part of your letters, then from the menu select Object/Add Shadow Layer. Select "Blackout Shadow" in the pop up window, if you want the layers to be tight together change the size to 0, then click OK. Select your new layer and the stitch layer and use Path/Fron...

Re: getting really frustrated with Sizzix Eclips

Don't plug in both the handset and the computer at the same time. The USB cord goes directly from the eClips to the computer. I would also go to the Craft Edge website and download the update. I'm running 1.506. Not sure if that was the last version of the original eCAL, but it probably is. Also, my...

Re: to upgrade or not

SCAL4 does not work with any Cricut machines. If you don't want to use the Cricut Design Space and can still return the Cricut your best option would probably be a different machine.

Re: Layers

Did you convert the text to Path? It won't show up in eCAL if you don't. My versions of Inkscape and eCAL1 seem to work better if I use Path/Union on the text rather than Path/Convert to Path. HTH

Re: Brocken lines

If your original image has broken lines, you will need to join them. I have a tutorial on how to do this here. If the original image has solid lines, but not completely black, it might help to adjust the trace settings. I have a couple of basic trace tutorials here.

Re: Cameo users: Do I need Studio?

I have been converting my files to dxf for the basic edition, straight lines work better than curves. Let me know if you want to do this and have any questions. I really dislike using the basic edition though, the lack of layers drives me crazy! I found the Designer Edition for a good price, is it p...

Re: Manual for SCAL 4

If you go to the Help menu and select "Help", it will bring up the whole document and you can print it, but the SCAL4 version is 77 pages long.

Re: Improved registration marks for Cameo/SCAL4

Susan, It still doesn't work. The registration marks are outside the shape where they always are, not on the corners of the REGMARK layer. I need the registration marks to be closer to the cutting lines, otherwise I'm wasting half of the paper, and while I've found a better and lower cost source for...
