    Any chance of the file or a screen shot of MTC open with it in?  I'm not sure what you are trying to do - are you trying to divide the picture into four pieces to cut larger?

    Another thought are you trying to colour individual parts of the picture?

    Tiling in MTC is a specific function so your words are very confusing. It is used mostly by people that do vinyl work to subdivide their cut files into smaller sections so that they can make a big wall vinyl project - there is no rectangle edition in this function. You just add the dimensions and the number of sections you want and the program does the rest. On the other hand to merge a rectangle around a group of shapes is a different process. If you post your work to date we can better see what you are wanting to do. It might involve boolean join or it might be a shadow of a rectangle and a merge - there is no telling, there are many ways to accomplish this. Just putting a rectangle on top of your other shapes in contrast mat - you won't even see what is on the bottom - if you change your mat to say green then you will - but MTC is a vectorizing and not raster program - all the shapes your see are cutting paths and every shape will be cut out anyway. If you only want to cut only the outer rectangle - then put it on the bottom layer and then select texture snapshot will make the inner shapes into a texture or raster image. You might lose some of the outlines if you do not shadow them first.
