All of this screencasts are wonderfull. Very usefull indeed.
What’s happens if, instead of using manual kerning to adjust the position of the text, you rotate the whole thing -45º? (or is this a possibility given by 0.46 and not by 0.45?)

Thanks you Thank you Thank you!!!! I have spent week trying to figure this out on my own. Everything I was trying to accomplish was in this video. Thank you again for the time you have spent to teach others.
i AM VERY NEW TO THIS AND WOULD LIKE TO KNOW, HOW DO I DOWNLOAD THE RIGHT VERSION OF INKSCAPE TO USE ON MY MAKE THE CUT/ CRICUT CUTTING MACHINE. i KNOW YOU MAY NOT BE FAMILIAR (NOT SURE IF I SPELLED THAT RIGHT) WITH EITHER ONE OF THE ITEMS I MENTIONED…..
aNY HELP WOULD BE OF HELP. YOUR VIDEO WAS VERY HELPFUL
I have no idea what “right” version of Inkscape you’ll need for your cutter but you can download the latest version (release 0.47) from http://www.inkscape.org/download/?lang=en. Just pick a link for your particular operating system, download, install, and give it a try. 🙂
In the latest version of Inkscape, version 0.48, they have added some letter/word spacing options on the text toolbar that were not present in v0.45. That’s as automatic as you’ll probably get. Works well on text paragraphs, at least that’s what I use it for.
@Mykel. Hmm…not exactly sure. I’ve never used a Cricut so not sure how to prepare a file for it. Maybe try saving a plain svg instead of an Inkscape default svg. Or does it need dxf? Or another format?
