Making Weeding Easier

You can simplify your weeding by placing a shape around your design. In this sample I used a rectangle and put it on a layer by itself, the bottom layer so it is behind all the other layers. I also set the color to white so all you see in figure 1 is the outline.
When you cut the design, there will be space around the design as in figure 2 (which is the cut preview in MTC). Then you can peel off the majority of the material (paper, vinyl, etc.) and get it out of the way (figure 3). Weeding is easier after that because you have less “material” to work with (figure 4).
Hope this helps someone.
