Open the Print Dialog in Silhouette and choose 'Adobe PDF'. Then click on Preferences. Select the Paper/Quality Tab, set the color to Black & White and then select Advanced. Change the Paper size to 'Postscript Custom Page Size' and then set it to 12x12'. Press OK, OK, Then Apply and Print. Choose the name and location for your PDF file. Now – open your Finder Window (on a Mac) or File Explorer (on a PC). I keep it minimized, so that it can stay in the foreground of my Silhouette Library. Double click on that folder to open it & show the files.
I have a Silhouette Cameo digital cutter and though their software is 'nice' I would much prefer to do my designing in AD and then be able to transfer the design to the Silhouette Studio software. I am able to import SVGs, but I'm having problems, and since this is new to me, I'm probably doing something wrong.
If I make a design in iDraw and export it to svg, it will import to Silhouette Studio fine. But if I make the same design in AD, it imports without the bitmap fill, and is only a fraction of the original size. Any help would be appreciated, except PLEASE don't tell me to use iDraw just because it works. LOL I LOVE AD, just want to be able to do more with it.
I'm uploading screenshots of both iDraw and AD, plus the exported SVGs, and screenshots of both SVGs imported into Silhouette Studio. Again, thanks in advance, I'm guessing it is some setting I'm using while exporting, which I haven't figured out.
