I am having a terrible time trying to figure out how to cut only the outline without having to manually delete every piece of each layer. I am doing print-2-cut and have the layers window open, go to cut & break apart the layers but then there are hundreds I have to go through. The has to be an easier way. I'm beyond frustrated & need this done by Wednesday! Please help a newbie out! :?
Here's the image. Also what can I do to when it says the registration marks are off the page?

For the message image is off the page, your image is too close to the border of the mat and there will not be enough room to print the registration marks. Move your image further away from the outer edges of the mat.

To print just the outline of the image, open your layers panel (windows - layers). The panel shows up on the right hand side of your screen. Close the layer by clicking on the eye of the layers you do not want to cut. What will cut is the remaining layer -- or your outline that is still has the open eye.

You broke apart, and now right click on the scallop outline and hide it...drag cursor around all else and go to Object Group, then Object and Show All... now in layers click the one eye by that new GROUP. You should have that and the scalloped outline...and now only the outline is there showing...you can copy paste this and keep it separate somewhere and put your image back as it was.

OR more simply...break apart...click on scallop and copy paste(right click copy...right click paste)...voila

I made it more than necessary above...heee heee

Sooooo copy the 2 scalloped outlines & paste them onto a separate page? I did that & it seems like it will work but noting will print? I've tried restarting my computer & everything. I can print form other programs, email & safari so it's something within eCal. I am pulling me hair out! It goes through all of the steps but just never prints it?

See if there is any info in this post above.

Have you tried exporting the image for a .png(change the drop-down for the type of file to save) and then use FILE and PLACE the picture image to print? That may be another way.
