Hello...I don't know what I'm doing incorrectly.
Trying to set 'fit to length' to 8" to make a cut for Cricut Lite Cupcake Wrappers.
The cricut machine says: won't fit.
Could someone please tell me exactly how to use the fit to length key. - thanking you in advance. (I have a Cricut Expression machine)

REPOST: I just figured it out !- not sure how I did it but I set the length to 8" and put the setting size to the lowest 1/4" and it read: "8" length to adjust to 2" width to match" or something like that...I tried a couple of styles and it cut out perfectly sized cupcake wrappers for the regular size paper cups.
Can't wait until tomorrow to create - for anyone having problems cutting, I found you have to use a good quality/thickness paper (at least I did) and at a slow speed if you are cutting anything detailed.


Thank you, Narelle and Char - it works great :).

When you use Fit to Length the height of the object is calculated in proportion to the length you set. It looks like by using 8" for the length the height is too big to fit on the mat.

Have you tried using the opposite setting for RELATIVE and/or REAL dial size? I.e., if you have it on RELATIVE, try using the REAL dial size.

Are you using the machine manually?

Also, may you just set the display to 1" (since it won't do anything on 8") and just see if the machine automatically sets the size (say 7.5, because maybe it will do 7.5 and not 8") for you when you say "Fit to Length".

Otherwise, see if this link helps you any! : http://youtube.com/watch?v=PpJpn_9aIWs
