I have several borders I've purchased in the silhouette store. I want to cut them at 12" lengths. How do I do that without stretching the designs?

You can duplicate the design (copy & paste), overlap part of it so it matches up and then weld it to make it as long as you like without making it skewed.

Yes, do it as a duplicate. Zoom in on your screen so you can easily see where they overlap and get them perfect. Then click the weld button! Easy Peasy Pudding Pie!

Well, enlarging the screen is certainly the key! I was trying to do it in regular size and was having trouble making sure it was lining up. I'm new at this but am quickly getting the hang of it with all of your help! Thanks!

Ok, I got them overlapped but when I click the weld button, it deletes all the detail. I am working on a paw border and it takes the paw prints out and only leaves the outline. Is another way to do it to group it all together?
