I hate to admit it but there is a lot of abbrivated words I don't underrstand. I think I know but I want to be sure

one is SGV what is that.. its says to DL it or save.

Is there a special place on the cricut board where I could learn these things.

I hope I don't sound too stupid just a little of the unknown.

I am not a pro at this either ,kinda new at the whole thing but I think SGV are cutting files for the thrid party programs like SCAL that will void the warranty on the machine and DL might mean down load??Confused Confused I think but I am sure someone else will correct me if I am wrong.

I'll search for a link for the terms we use here on the board. I still have to peek at it sometimes.

As far as SVG files, the cricut products do not use SVG files. The third-party software that was mentioned is a Provo Craft competitor and we cannot and should not discuss it on the MB and use of it will void your warranty.

This is the most-up-to date list, I think. I cut and pasted. Can't take credit it, it was prepared by our most helpful Scrapalette. Sadly, we don't have the bug heads anymore:(
