    Sorry, if this post sounds wacky guys. But, what I need to know is how I can example- Jeff's Tractor [ in an arc]
    and Jeff's tractor [ object] underneath it.
    Gee, I hope you understand what I'm getting at. So, how do I get these guys all together and cut out at the same time?:thankyou:

    basically, all you need to do is import your object (the tractor) then type in and arch "jeff's tractor" over top of it. now you're ready to go.... :thumb:

    I'm useing SignBlazer on a JSI P-24.
    I tried the import the [tractor] and then arch the name above it. But when I pull up "cut" all I get is the tractor.

    Im not familiar with SignBlazer. you should get Flexi.
    But Ill try anyway...

    Make sure they are the same color?
    Go to your options menu and browse through them and see if you have a "combine" option.

    Thats all I can think of not knowing your software

    sometimes when you arch text you must draw your "select" box much taller at the top to encapsulate all of it.

    I'm with Michael here. Dont know the machine or software...but try to select all the items on your design page and "group" them before sending to the cutter..
    You could cut the individual items and then lay them out on your substrate. I understand that is NOT what you WANT to do..but it is an alternate.
    Good luck...Ken

    There might also be a feature call " cut all colors" - "single panel, single job" in your software that might help as well.
