I haven't had time to do much with my E2 but right away I found
something I don't like!
The-door/lid or whatever its called that opens it up, is very curved and makes your
mat stick up in the air instead of down like on the old E. and the biggy problem is
that when I reach up to touch the screen I am always hitting the door where it turns up with my arm. I don't know about anyone else but I sit at my work table to use my E. and this is irritating me to keep bumping my arm in the same place every time I want to touch the screen. All demos I have seen they were always standing up and reaching down to use the screen.
I think it is poor engineering to have that door curve up so high--I would rather
have had it open nice and flat like the old E, even if it takes two doors like that
to make it work right.
Has anyone else noticed this or am I the only one that is having this problem???

I actually kept the door closed while I was using the screen to setup my mat. Once I had everything the way I wanted it on the mat, I opened the door and loaded the mat to cut.

Maybe that will help??

I was thinking the same thing about the door not opening all the way! I moved it to the very edge of my table so it hung over and down a little. I've been working with it like this since Saturday thinking I'd get used to it. It never occurred to me to keep the door closed! Thanks Stefanie!

I noticed the same thing when I was making a video comparing the two machines. There is a difference in the way the machine sits.

I find that if I load my mat too early, my forearm gets stuck to it, lol! I stand up to scrap so I don't notice the door issue.

But I miss my arrows too!

I was thinking the same thing, that it is higher than the previous Expression. BUT, after using the E2 for a few cuts, I noticed that it keeps the mat more stable, rather than letting it hang down before. This way, the mat doesn't curve and possibly have the paper pull away from the mat.

It like anything, it takes getting used to something new.

Go to page 15 and read about starting point. YOu can change the starting point where you want your E2 to cut by changing this. Its done this way, rather than pushing buttons to move the blade to where you want to cut. I found it quite by accident!
