    I need to know if there is any way you can bevel edges in Flexi.?
    I can open it up in Flexi but it does something to it and takes away the depth look.

    Not that I am aware of.. I always export to photoshop. I'm also leaving that method. I use Illy more and more now.

    Depending on the version of Flexi you have, you can use whatever Adobe Plugin you want straight from within Flexi (Only available in FlexiDesigner - Flexi Print/Cut - FlexiSign Pro). So Beveled edges should not be an issue.
    The ADOBE Filters menu can be found under the Bitmap menu.

    Cheers

    You will need to tell Flexi where to look for the Adobe plugins. I believe it's in the file preference section.

    You have to convert the text to a bitmap so be sure it is correct. It's not easy to fix. When you convert the image be sure to leave a cushion area around the text or it's difficult to select and create the mask.

    Not Really, But I know there is a Flexi Training DVD available from SAi, where all is explained in detail by Mark Rugan. Have a look at www.sign.com and look for the Software Training.

    If I get a minute I'll try to get something together. I've had the onsite flexi training and since the beveled edge option is supplied by SAI I don't think Mark covers it. Goggle "beveled edges flexi" and see what you get. I found it somewhere a while back.
