Which carts isn't it working for? If I have any of them I'll test it out for you.

Updates on the Imagine issues on the last post. :)

I can't cut anything at the moment, individually, grouped etc. I've tried every which way. Also did so with my Mac and it was the same thing. Weird huh? Fingers crossed.. this week would be awesome if they put the new build out. I wanna play!! :)

:)Khrista

Sounds like the update will be next week now. I sure hope it fixes your cutting problem!

I have a few questions. First of all I was trying to use the Disney Classic cart with CCR and all of the buttons on the left that you press to get layer, blackout etc. are blank. I can use them by trial and error but that's a pain. Any ideas how to fix this? ALso when trying to layer, some of the Disney cart layers, group a lot of tiny pieces together so you can't color and place them individually where they should go. Any way to get around this. Thanks for any help.

Other than dragging the handbooks out, there's nothing else you can do. I'm sure this has been reported as a bug but it wouldn't help to report it again. There are other carts that don't have the buttons labelled too.

For the layers that are made up of multiple pieces, you can use the Hide Contour feature to hide the different parts. It means you have to put multiples of each layer on your page and hide different parts in each one though. I've done it and will be posting a tutorial on our CCR blog about that this week. It's a huge pain and I hope that they will add the option to ungroup images like that so we can move the different parts around.

I have a question about sizing with this wonderful procedure. Is there a way to make a big Disney figure so all the tiny parts can be seen and then when you are done to resize it to a smaller reasonable size? Thanks for any help.

Yes! If the post goes through after I explain, I'll be surprised. Otherwise, I'll copy/paste and send you a PM if it doesn't go through.

First of all, be sure you are on RELATIVE DIAL SIZE at the top menus.

You can click on all your images (big and tiny, so they all stay in proportion with each other) by clicking on the first one, then holding down the control key on your keyboard, click on the next one, and so on until you have clicked on all the layers (if there are more than one). Hit GROUP at the top. That will maintain the one big box until you have done your re-sizing.

To re-size (you might know this), drag the bottom right hand circle out to as big as you want the layers to see them/work with them. When you are finished, then you can put them back down to the actual size you want them to be when you cut them out. When they are the size you want, click on the images (that are grouped) and get the one big box; then UNGROUP. This will get the images separated again.

Sometimes layers will UNGROUP when you get a box around the image. If you have a box around the layers and you see the UNGROUP at the top of your screen in black (not grayed out), you can hit UNGROUP to get all the layers separated.

HTH!

If you've been trying to layer Disney images so they will print and cut as one object I have worked out how to do it.

Here's a sample:



And here's how I did it:

Thanks so much for your help. One more question...when in Narelle's layering process, do I size the character as you explained? Thanks again.

I just place all the different layers on the mat at a smallish size first. Then use Ctrl A to select everything. (It will even select objects that are off the mat. I often use the white part of the screen when I'm adding my images.)

Like this:



Once it's all selected you can stretch it to what ever size you like.

What I tend to do instead is just zoom my screen using the zoom button on the toolbar. That makes it much easier to see the smaller pieces.

here's an example of using Narelle's method and resizing. I designed McQueen at 10 in so I can see where everything and then resized to 4, but could definitely go smaller or bigger.

Narelle:

Thanks for figuring this out. Being able to print all the layers as one image was the primary reason I purchased the Imagine. Once PC get's all these bridge errors taken care of this will be an awesome feature. I am looking forward to utilizing it more once I am able to fully cut without issues.

Thank you for all you hard work and efforts!

Followed your directions (I think) Glare but when it went to cut it cut in the layers!Checked the regrouping and it all moved away from the base ok. Printed and then cut in layers. What am I doing wrong???

You're not doing anything wrong Carol. Since the latest build was released last week this method hasn't worked. I'm trying to figure out whether there's another way to do it or whether we'll have to wait for a fix.

Ok so I tried it again...actually twice since and it didn't work RollEyes I am giving myself a time-out LOL or else I will get frustrated with the process. For some reason I cannot seem to get the little pieces to line up properly so they are not turning grey before turning black...(argh!!!) and I also do not have like a huge black area to click on for the little mermaid (like how you use the black in Daisys' eyes) and then group (I think that's the step) so I get the pieces losing their colour and turning black again Huh...oh boy. Doing this all wrong...I am still quite excited for it to work though.

I will be watching and learning ThumpUp Woot

Hi chrissie,

Do you have the imagine set as your machine?

BTW - are you aware that the current build (59) caused a problem with this method. The project currently prints but won't cut.
