Why are you using text to path for plain boxes? If the boxes are distorting in studio, only stretch the boxes using the corners. Helps to keep proportion. If the are uneven when transferring to the cup, then you need to use transfer tape.

I'm sorry my question wasn't clear! I'm wondering if silhouette studio has something like MTC's conical wrap. My image is 4 squares in a row n when I transfer it to a mug they don't look straight

Can you switch to a mug with straight up-and-down sides? Otherwise it will take figuring out the angle of the slope on the mugs, etc. Or maybe measure around the mug where the top and bottom of the squares will be, figure out the difference it should be on the top and bottom, and compensate that way.

You can upgrade MTC and use it with the silhouette.
And if you still have the old MTC and want to keep it, you can install the new in a separate folder. I can't remember the exact instructions, but I know it can be done.
