I too LOVE SCAL 2!!! I'm sure there's much more to it than I've messed around with but just that fact that I don't have to deal (and stress out over) inkscape is worth the 30.00!!! Now when is Todd going to come out with a Gypsy version of SCAL? OMG!! I'd make him cookies for life!!! LOL!

I wish we had a "Mirror Image" Button on SCAL2... If I do say turned in feet I would like it that I can mirror the feet the opposite way so they looked turned in.. :( Therefore I have to do that in Inkscape..

I had just bought mine in May.What a rip off.I was not aware of anyone working on making a newer version.At least they could of let someone know.Then we could of made a desision to buy or wait.I did not even know of this software.I just so happened to run across it.My sister-in-law has scrapbook for a long time and she still has never heard of it until I just told her.

Todd all I can say is you are awesome!!! the trace feature is genius. I tell everyone about this software and since I work in a craft store and teach scrapbooking and cricut classes is ALOT of people. Explaining how to trace in inkscape was alittle difficult. This makes SCA even more useful then before and well worth the price. My cricut may overheat it is getting such a workout now. :D

Can someone tell me, if I download the UPGRADE, will I need to update my firmware or whatever it is called - and will that make my Cricut unusable? I worry about this. The UPGRADE sounds awesome.

Nope! You need not do anything to your Cricut's firmware! In fact, with the SCAL2 upgrade, you have two programs...both SCAL and SCAL2!!! So worth it!

When you went to you SCAL settings when it's opened and you hit cut do you have it set to cricut personal??? you have to have it set to your own machine make...If it's saying "error" it's not identifying the proper machine...
