    Looks like you are having a panic attack.
    The lines may be from a problem with registration of the product. Make sure it is registered.
    In Corel you change the text to curves with Ctrl-q. I'm no help with flexi.
    Change it to curves in corel and save it as an EPS file. Flexi can import the EPS file. I think....:)

    Was it like cutting the letters in half when you looked at the cut paths on the screen? It was doing that to me when I imported an Ai. file, it cuts them fine though.

    What I do is select all convert to curves in corel, export Ai. v7 and import into flexi

    The segmented cuts has to do with the way Corel treats combined objects when exporting in EPS or AI. The workaround is to perform a "Break Apart" in Corel and then do a Path Sort - Automatic in Flexi after first converting the imported EPS to outlines.

    That may sound complicated but it just a couple of extra steps that are specific menu commands.

    And, yes, anytime you take text from one application to another you should always frist convert the text to outlines (paths in some applications). The exception would be when you are creating an Acrobat PDF.

    If you have both programs loaded on the same computer, just pull up the file in Corel and then copy and paste into Flexi.
