  1. This would be so wonderful if you had enabled the closed captioning. The deaf and hard-of-hearing community will have to look elsewhere. Bummer.
  2. or you can just go the scale option and set the actual size of you object
  3. Thanks for a great voice sound for hearing a boring matter! Not exactly what I am looking for, but it ´s a good trick! I want to have a shadow box resized from 11,3 x 11,3 to 8 x 10 in and It ´s a headache. that´s the link https://www.silhouettedesignstore.com/view-shape/37572
  4. if I convert my PNG file to DXF would that change the file size when I imported it in Silhouette basics Studio
  5. Nice video and bonus (for me, anyway) you sound very like Judy Greer!
  6. Nikki, I think I can explain why objects are not the size you think they are... Its a little complicated but here goes. Let's say your object is a pumpkin and it measures 2 inches (one edge of the pumpkin to the other edge of the pumpkin). However, the "box" around the pumpkin is 3 inches... So there is a half inch between the pumpkin's edge and the box around this object (Assuming all is square). If you select the pumpkin in the scale function the size will be 3 inches (not 2 inches). In other words, Silhouette recognizes and measures the size of the box NOT the contents within it. Nevertheless, your tip for resizing objects is valid and useful. For what it's worth, I use Silhouette for custom stencils for air brushing.
  7. Thank you - perfectly and simply explained. Julie
