The preferred file format in MTC is .svg. Importing and using .svg files in MTC couldn't be easier. MTC is fully integrated with your LD Library. You can access your LD Library and all the LD inventory in three ways:
- The art icon button in the top menu
- Under the File menu, choose Import>From Lettering Delights
- Under the View menu, click on Lettering Delights
Older versions of Cricut Design Space did not always open up .svg files true to size. You no longer have to worry about sizing issues in Cricut Design Space. If you do want to resize an image, upload it to your mat and drag the image smaller or bigger by clicking on double arrow icon in the lower- right hand corner.
When you purchase product from LD it will be made available just as soon as you complete the check out process. It will also be available through your account in your "Downloads" area as well as your Order History.
Lettering Delights zips all it's product into zip files. Zip files allow us to compress many items within different folders into one "zipped" storage folder.
Make The Cut software is fully integrated into LD. You have access to LD's entire library of images as well as being able to access your own purchases easily.
To access products in MTC, simply do one of the following:
- click on the art icon in the top menu
- go to File>Import>From LetteringDelights
- go to View>LetteringDelights
Sure Cuts A Lot (SCAL) can open the following file types:
A .zip file is a commonly used file format that compresses files to make them easier to download. There are many programs available online that allow you to unzip/extract these files, some are trial based or require a purchase and others are free. Most every device comes with a free way to access your files that are "zipped". In Windows, right mouse click over the .zip file and you should have options to "extract" the file. On a Mac, doubleclick over the .zip file. Take care where you are extracting the file. As you "unzip" a file, you will be given an option of where you want to store it.
A thin Font is a single-line font. A person can put a pen, crayon, or a number of tools right into the "claw" of a cutting machine rather than a blade and use the machine to "draw" instead of "cut". When you do that with a regular font (.ttf or .otf) the machine traces the outline of the font so rather than having a single line, you get a double line.
When you use a font (.ttf or .otf file) on your computer, it will typically look something like this example (unless it is an outlined version of a font):
SCAL vs. 2 was the last version of SCAL capable of cutting files with the Cricut Expression. If you have SCAL 3 or higher, you can prepare your files and take advantage of newer features and then still send your file to SCAL 2, to be cut with your Cricut Expression.
To do this, simply go through the steps you normally would to prepare and alter your files for cutting in SCAL 3 or higher. When you are finished do the following:
- Open Sure Cuts a Lot 2
- Go to File > Send To > Sure Cuts a Lot 2
- Your design is transferred and should be ready to cut.
Many fonts have other characters available than the standard ones you see on an American keyboard.
It is important to note that accented letters are not recognized by all browsers and not all fonts include them. To enter the extended characters into text, follow these steps:
- Note the number at the left of the required character.
- Place the cursor in the text where the extended character is to appear.
- Hold the [ALT] key down and, via the Keypad, enter "0" plus the number.
- Take your finger off the [Alt] key and the character should appear.
Make sure your fonts are not zipped. If they are in a .zip folder, you must double-click the folder and extract the font first. Take careful note to where you save the font.
Select the font file then right-click. Choose Install.
LetteringDelights is changing. We've launched a new site and that brings big changes. We apologize for any problems you may occur with this change. We've put together a list of bullet points about some of the things you may want to know.
- Your information is secure and you will still have access to all your product.
- Your product and downloads are available in your Account now rather your Library.
When using MTC there is no need to change software to print out other elements for your crafting. Simple print right from MTC. This feature is especially helpful when you are doing print and cut projects but many crafters just need to print a simple sentiment for a card or a tag.
The Print command is available under the File menu. Clicking on it will open a dialog window that is typical to any print dialog window you've seen when you've printed from any other program on your computer.
The following video shows how you can type a sentiment and print it right in MTC.
