Cut lines score only, do not cut

Post by karend440 »

Greetings!
Has anyone run into this? I have SVG files, that have cut and score lines. Using Ecal3. They are clearly marked as score, and cut, on different layers. The preview is fine, you can see what cuts and what scores. Yet, when it's sent to the machine, everything is scoring. The cut lines do not cut, they score only. Any files (these are purchased ones) that I use with score lines, the entire file only scores. Has anyone run into this? or - know how to fix this?
Thanks for any help!
This is frustrating!

Try this... select the cut layer only and then, on the Fill & Stroke Panel, at the bottom, change it to a score pattern (doesn't matter) and then change it back to solid. I have found that with some SVG files this is needed and it corrects the issue.
