    Laura,

    Yes, you can play wround with weld in the trial version. Just place all the individual letters where you want them, draw a box around them with your mouse (this is called magic select), and then click on Weld on the menu on the bottom (the icon that looks like a welded square and circle).

    Hope it helps,
    Stacy

    You can pretty much do every thing except cut then it will put a slice thru the deign, but you can create files and save them to your computer then when you purchase you can open and cut all the files you want, Don't forget to take a look at the gallery which can be found under custom shape tab then the make the cut logo there are over a 1100 files there.

    lauralee,
    When you draw a box around your letters with the mouse, pay close attention and make sure that ALL parts of the letters are included (the blue dashed box that you drag with your mouse becomes separate blue dashed boxes around all the included letters). For weld, the letters all have to be touching too...if you want to just have a word with non-touching letters act as a group--use join. After you have dragged the dashed blue line around your word (the large dashed box dissapears and only the letters you surrounded have individual blue dashed boxes)...try CTRL W to weld if your button doesn't want to cooperate.
    You should be able to do everything in trial version that you can in the paid, but your designs will have a 'watermark' cut through them till you register. Enjoy!
    Hope this helps.

    Laura,
    I'm trying to see if I can recreate what's happening with you but the computer gremlins are having a party in my laptop. (Not a MTC problem) Everytime I'm trying to download the storybook font (from multiple sites) I KNOW I'm choosing to save as a zipped folder. For some unknown reason, it is saved and attempts to open as an MSDOS program...if I can actually get the storybook font, I will get back to you on weld.
