When you use this program for the first time, look to the right and you'll see the screen below. Customize your mat size, zoom in, set the default size of your shapes/letters and even change the color of your mat. Click on the use these setting box to save your choices.
Under Custom Shapes you can edit your own artwork. I pulled in my logo from my photography website and was able to manipulate the font and shape image. Do you realize how huge that is. I took a picture and was able to pull the font off of it!!
Here is the Text and Fonts screen. You can pull any font, shape or wingding off you computer to cut. See my next post to see how easy this is.
