    You have to assign it a color.
    Then try cutting it.

    Off topic, but can I nit pick? I'd remove the line across the top of the skulls so they don't look so much like medical pieces.

    Have you actually created a cut line under either effects> contour cut or converted a line under arrange contour cut make? You can also do >select by attributes and look under stroke. There should be a stroke named Contour Cut.

    Bought this from, a person who went out of business. I just had a little cutter for one color vinyl. Had to transfer the license and upgrade and they sent a disk with no book. Sorry.
