    I have a graphic I am cutting, and one of the lines is in a script. When I convert to paths, obviously the letters are separate, even though they look connected. Is there any way to connect these letters so that when I cut, I don't get separate letters. I am finding it difficult to weed, as the letters are thin. It seems that it would be a whole heck of a lot easier if the words were conencted.

    Also, using cutting master, I seem to be having a hard time figuring out what to size my document at so that it matches the roll size.

    Thanks in advance for the help/advice.

    You need to weld the script letters. In Illustrator, select the text and execute a Pathfinder > Merge command.
