I just installed CCR last night and have a question or two.
Is there a 'button' that will let you see what the image/word you are working with will look like when cut? In DS, you can see what it will look like so you can check to see that all letters are welded.

Also, if I create a phrase and want to do a shadow for it, how do I do that?

TIA!

Hi Becky

You can get an idea of what your design looks like by turning on Fill Mode Enabled. You'll find that in the Options menu then the Craft Room tab.

When you overlap images in CCR they are automatically welded (unless you click the Don't Weld button). So what you see on the screen is how it will cut. The section that is welded will change to a light grey colour.

For your phrases, the easiest way is to use the Add New Text Box function in the Fonts menu. Select the Font you want to use, create your word/phrase and use the Letter Spacing box to overlap your letters.

Then Create a new layer (page). You'll need to have Mat Layers enabled. If you don't see a Layers Menu go to the Options Menu, Craft Room tab and check the Mat Layers Enabled box. Then go to the Layers menu and click Add New Layer.

On the new layer create a new text box, select the Shadow option from the Creative Feature drop down menu (if your chosen font has a shadow) and type your word again. Move the word so it's behind your other word and use the Letter Spacing box to overlap your letters again until they line up with your original word.

I'm half way through writing a tutorial on this for the CCR blog. I'll post as soon as it's ready!
