trying to import PCS file into Design Space

Hello, I looked to see if this question had already been answered, but could not find it. I just purchased PCS and am trying to import my saved file into Cricut DS. It is saving as an .svg during the process, but when it is saved on my computer, and I go to retrieve the file, it is a .pcs file, and Criicut DS does not import that type of file. What do I need to do to save it correctly so DS will import it as an SVG? Thanks!

    File>Export>Project Rending>As SVG should work though you will need to proportional resize in DS if you was you project to be the size as design in PCS
    as it appear DS will import the SVG 25% larger

    I even tried just one of the projects from the gallery to make sure it wasnt a problem in my creation of the project. Here is the candles project from the gallery in PCS...

    and here is the project brought over into DS...

    its a mess...

    Firstly check the print preview in PCS and check you score? fold lines are showing as dashed

    IN DS There should be 2 layers one for cuts and one for score lines (although name cut as well) as
    it appear DS brings the score line in as continuous cuts rather than dashes

    once you identify the layer contain the score line set it's line type to score

    DS has some funny quirk to it, you have to group or combine or some other function in order to keep all the lines together. It's the DS program that is the issue here, based on what I read from a FB group. I think the function might be attach.

    Yes, the import takes a little adjusting. Score lines (fold lines) come in as cut, so they need to be changed and then 'attached' After some fiddling with it, I think I have it. Running a test now. Thanks for all the help everyone, I was VERY frustrated last night, but think I figured it out...*fingers crossed*
