    You need to IMPORT them into the software not cut and paste...........
    Usually under the File menu........


    That will get you going..............

    If you import...

    as a Postscript .EPS it will be vectored and therefore cuttable.

    Possibly unmask the .eps file once you bring it into your LXi software...

    Hey there shovel. EPS doesn't always mean it's a vector file. I can save a jpeg as an .ai file too but it's still a jpeg inside.

    Fair enough, I get all kinds of ridicules combinations of file perversions from customers, including raster eps files.
    I kinda read over the clip art thing.
    Not being famailiar with LXI, might it actually rasterize a placed file automatically? If it's an eps file why can he just open it instead of placing it?

    I have flexi but would think it is comparable - right click the image, see if it gives you option of "unmask", click unmask and delete any raster boxes that come up. You may have to unmask a couple of layers - I've had that happen a few times but never with a clipart program.
