permanent details on each file that can't be cut out

6ducks6ducks Member Posts: 6
HI. I would like to put a number on each of my cutting files but don't want them to be cut out, as they will be a file identifier for someone who will be cutting them out.  Is this possible?  eg. #100 to be visible when printed but not have to keep closing the  'eye' before cutting out. Trying to simplify the process for my cutting partner.

    If you don't mind the notation being within one of the cutout shapes you could add it as text then select both that and the shape and do a texture snapshot 

    Or you could add a small shape in a waste area and add text to that and texture snapshot although this small shape would be still cutout

    another option might be the notes window

    When I've set up files for others with this same idea, I've always put the labels on one layer by themselves and then I rename that layer: Labels - DO NOT CUT as reminder to not send them to the cut layer. I also then Hide that layer so that it's faint enough to be visible but protected against cutting until the user has a chance to figure out what's going on. Adding the info about this into the Notes window, as @Crazy_Mr_Zing suggested, is also a good idea.
