DPI Settings

I am trying to import an svg at 72 DPI.  I have seen in scrappydew's tutorial, where the import screen provides an option to select "Use Actual" and entre a DPI setting.  However, when I go to the import screen in my version of MTC, that option is not displayed.  Is there somewhere to turn this on/off, or what am I missing? TIA

    Are you having a issue when you import the file ?  different dpi can cause a size issue

    WHat was the origin of the file If the file was not designed as a cutting file it may include all sorts of addition layers, masking layers , gradient layers , fill layers  to name but few . the result of the import might look like a jumbled mess

    Those are old tutorials on ScrappyDew's site based on an older version of MTC.  That option was updated in newer version of MTC so that MTC should look at the SVG file information and import the file at the correct size based on the information in the SVG file its self.  As a result, that option was not necessary and removed MTC as I recall.

    Whether or not the SVG imports at the correct size depends on the origin of the SVG file. Removing the ability to enter the DPI was a mistake because not all SVG's contain the DPI information in the file. The ones from KNK STudio, for example, do not import into MTC in their original dimensions.   So, you do need to check your import before cutting.

    Always know what size the designer intended for the project. I occasionally forget that some files come in much small than what the designer meant them to be. Surprise!!!
