In the new software operations manual under "Cut Path" and I quote.. "To create a cut select the desired geometry then press the "Cut Path" button from the "Tools"" menu of the Tools toolbar. The Cut-Out Control dialog will open."

OK, dumb question. What is the "desired geometry"? If they are speaking of the actual white lines of the part, I can't seem to "select" all of the lines and rounded corners without the other white lines of the part disappearing and reverting back to black dash lines. What have I done wrong?

I'd send my file along for someone to help but don't know how to do that either! Talk about being totally frustrated.

H-E-L-P!

confused Question Very Happy

I believe the "desired geometry" is things like the pattern outline, connected lines making a closed path, circle, rectangle etc.. to do a cut path all ends of the lines/object must be connected for the cut path tool to be activated.

To get all of your lines to be white do a right click and select all..or in your carving list winow, hold down the ctrl key and select the ones you want..

If you do need help with an mpc you can post it here with the file share feature or you can email it to me....
