April 28th Webinar [Over] - What questions or topics do you have?

Hello everyone,

Each week, I will start a thread a couple of days before the webinar as a place to write you questions and topics for the Q&A Webinar that week. This won't guarantee that every question and topic will be answered or covered, but it will at least give us a starting point for the webinar.

This is the thread for the Q&A Webinar on April 28th. You can register for this webinar at:
Tue, April 28, 2015 8:30 PM - 10:00 PM EDT

This will be for both MTC and PCS (Popup Card Studio). The latest version of MTC and PCS will be used in this Q&A

The list of April Q&A Webinars that you can register for can be found in this thread:

Type in your questions or topics below, but here are some RULES for this thread:
- Keep the questions/topics specific (e.g. do NOT ask "How do I use MTC?")
- Try to keep each post to one question/topic or a group of related questions/topics. If you have more than one unrelated question/topic, then add another post.
- Keep the wording in the post to the question/topic and any necessary detail
- If there is an existing thread that is dealing with the question/topic, and you feel that it would be a good question/topic to cover in the webinar, then post a link to that thread along with the question/topic.
- Do NOT post if you are not asking a specific question/topic (e.g. no "Me too!", "Great idea", or "That was covered before" type posts)
- If you see someone post a question/topic that you can help with before the webinar, feel free to work with them, but NOT on this thread - start a new thread or send them a PM or email.
- Try to remember, when you are posting a question/topic, that we can only show what is on our screen. We can't share images of off screen things we are doing (loading the cutter, paper, etc.).
- If you have a file that goes with the question/topic, then feel free to post it also. Please do NOT post copyrighted files (links to the original website would be OK).

I may have to add more rules [am I starting to sound like a tyrant yet ;-)], but that is probably enough for now. I am trying to keep this thread simple and succinct so that it can be a manageable tool used to improve our Q&A Webinars. Therefore, I will be EDITING and/or DELETING posts in this thread to keep them manageable and within the rules above. I am human, and will probably edit/delete too much in someone's eyes at some point, but please realize that I am doing so to keep things manageable. Please do not take offense at my edits/deletions. If you have an issue with what I did (or didn't do), please let me know at my email address (posted in my profile) or send me a PM.

This will not be the only venue for questions/topics for the webinar - we will also still continue using the question area in the webinar itself.

OK, If I haven't scared everyone off with my tyrannical rules...
Let the games, I mean questions, begin...

    FYI: Questions can be for either MTC and the new Popup Card Studio (PCS). The latest version of MTC and PCS will be used during this Q&A.

    An added request: If you don't mind, please type your name (and gender if it isn't obvious by the name) in your post so that we know who to talk to during the webinar, and also indicate whether or not you have a microphone in case we want to talk through your question...

    In Webinar April 16th 2013 @ 53:00 Bryan demonstrated how to thicken fretwork lines. My question to the team is, how can we best avoid design faults like this, particularly when using click & drag. Sadly I cannot attend the live session, but I have sent Bryan an example of how "it went wrong".
    Many thanks to you all,

    How to get MTC to work with UsCutter....
    When I click "Cut Project With" - I select "USCutter" and it comes up as an error.

    My question for the team of gurus has to do with getting a stencil font image to be usable. The font file name is HFF_floral_stencil from FONT RIVER. The upper case letter H was the one of the fonts I was trying to use.

    To attempt to get rid of some of the imperfections, I tried to shrink the image and use "smoothing", and then enlarged it to about 7 inches, used inward shadows, outward shadows, simplifying and other actions but was unsuccessful to get rid of the bad “bubbles” or “cheese holes” in the designs, and to really get the cutting edge smooth.
    I remember you or Julie showing some solutions in previous shows, but can’t remember which webinar or what was done.
    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Leslie W. requested a demo on how to take a large design for a wall and cut it down into pieces so our machines can cut it such as a tree. Also learn to make it cut it into different colors such as a tree trunk in brown and leaves in green.

    I am trying to make a box for 18" balloons...it doesn't have to be exactly like this...I can make my own designs for windows, but how can I make a box this size? I have access to 12x24 paper, or if it can be made in several pieces of 12x12 and glued, any help on this design would be greatly appreciated as there is nowhere in the states to purchase these.

    These are the balloons I am making and I would like to find a way to transport them easier. Thank you

    I am very new to PCS and I'm having trouble with some of the lines, like where to fold etc. I want to put the popup into another blank card but I don't understand where to do the gluing so it pops up. One card came out with dashed lines at the top of the card. Is there any way to see a card done? In the preview window my card will look great but after being cut out not so good. Thank you...
