    Hi All I have been busting my brain on how to do this I tried an I tried. I clicked a copied a picture a the us flag...I then wrote
    AMERA-CUT placed it over but for some reason my exclude common dose not work? If I picked a box form my shapes an then a star it works? I want to be able to see the flag on the wording... is the picture a diff format? How can I go about this matter at hand.:thankyou:

    The picture more than likely needs to be vectorized for that effect to work !

    Take your text and make it a compound path.

    Move the flag UNDER the text where you want it

    select the flag & the compound path and apply a mask!

    this works in the flexi that you have and other vector programs such as Illustrator. assuming your still not using flexi 5X or AI_3.0

    I see your going with my idea and i wish i could help but i never really tried to do it except for the day i wanted to show you but i couldn't figure it out either in flexi. i was also thinking for the "-" maybe make it look like an actual plotter blade;) (maybe even with the word cut welded inside the blade)

    Bold type is hard on the eye's, try not using it so much so we will want to read more, just a suggestion, I'm not telling you what to do. I did the same thing that Derf said, and it works for me. Where did you get the photo? Is it copyrighted?
