I have another silhouette question. If I am using a layered shape how do I get them to all be proportionate? For example I want to cut out the work LOVE and it has 3 layers. I want to change the size to make it bigger but I want to make sure all of the layers fit together. I hope this makes sense.

You have to "group" all three layers together, then re-size, then "ungroup" them to cut them.

I am having trouble because I want it to be 4x3 but when it is "grouped" the dimension of the layers all together. Does that make sense?

The steps the above poster suggested should work. Which design is it? You could also draw a box the size you want and then resize the largest layer to make sure it fits your dimensions.

I use my grid to check on sizing. I would group and then go by the largest layer lining up with the grid for the size I want, instead of going by the sizing it shows around the image.

I would suggest that you use the offset feature. You may need to play around with it, but possibly do an internal offset and an (external) offset, then check your dimensions on the offset.

Just my two peas!
Hope it works for you!

I agree with the other posters. If the shape is already 3 layers in the store, use the resize tool to change the size to 4x3 and the ungroup to cut the 3 layers.

Or take the one layer and use the offset tool to create the two other layers.

I totally understand what you mean.
Ungroup the design and move them away from each other. I usually arrange them in a row. Now you can click on each one and see what the size is.
To change the size select ALL shapes and resize by dragging one of the corners.
Click on individual shapes to see what the size is.
Let me know if this helps.

Hi!! I am so sorry that I have responded sooner but my daughter fell at school and hit her head. After waking up two days with a headache I took her to the Dr. She may have a mild concussion but poor thing just doesn't feel swell. I have decided to keep her home today and we are both crafting.


That was what I was looking for!! Thanks for the help.
