    I love them! I’m thinking the split letter monogram with the last name in the middle space etched on a glass. Hmmmm, Christmas is just right around the corner!

    I get my letter on the screen ready to cut. I find the center. I select the letter and convert text to path. I go to the move tool,select cut a straight line and try to select a point on the guide line. The message pops up (The line must cross only two different points) I’ve tried it several times and even though I have chosen convert text to path it still won’t let me cut it. Help, what am I doing wrong? I don’t have the pro.

    It sounds like you are doing the steps correctly. Have you checked in wire frame? Is it already cut?

    Did you possibly use an image instead of an actual font? What happens when you open the cut control panel? Do you get an image must be converted warning?

    One other thing comes to mind: maybe the font you are using has open paths. In other words, points that are not joined. You might need to look for those. Select the letter and go to the Shape menu and choose See Open Paths.

    What font are you using?

    I was trying to use Regal which was a font that I downloaded and installed in windows. To be sure it wasn’t that I tried the old English that was a pazzles font. It did the same thing. I checked the cut control and no warning. I did find this afternoon while playing around with it that it let me cut as long as I didn’t press down the shift key???? I just used the guide line to get it straight and it seemed to work ok. Thank you for you’re suggestions. I’m still working on it but I am making some progress. 🙂

    I did the same thing. I checked in wire view and could see that I cut it, how ever it would not move…then I selected just the top half to just slightly below the line and it worked!
