    Ok, it was an impulse by at the Baltimore Sign tradeshow a few months back, but how do I use it?
    I can open it up in my Illustrator CS2 and find what I'm looking for, no problem. I can then design my graphics, logos, etc... no problem.....THEN WHAT? How do I scale it to my LXi/FlexiSIGN to cut it to the correct size?
    I must be missing somthing or not thinking enough. I know each template is scaled 1:20, but what should I do then?
    I'm in the process or designing my friend's BMW race car for the up comming season and wanted to put this program to use.
    Any help would be great. Thanks!

    You can contact the mfr, but usually it needs to be scaled up 2000%. Then you have to recheck actual measurements from the vehicle against the screen view.

    That is correct

    In flexi you go to resice and change it from 100% to 2000% and click the check mark.

    design central

    Go to design central in Flexi and type in 20:1 in the height or width and your done. Make sure you highlight what part you want to scale or you can scale everything on page.

    Hope this helps!
