Great instructions, but you forgot one tiny important thing...somewhere around step 19 or 20, you have to go back in to the cut settings and select the items to cut, select Cut, and then continue on!

I have not had to go back in and reselect items to cut. It seems to cut without doing that. Those are the steps I follow exactly to cut my images. :-)

When I click on the no cut on each item. it is only no cutting the square outline box around each of them. It still keeps the cut line that is exactly around the image.

What I have found is that when you do a trace (as per instrcutions above), there are 2 cut lines. One is the outline around the outer edge of the image and the other is the outline around the rectangle used to define the traced area. I think what you are doing when you select "no cut" is selecting the outer rectangle as a no cut while leaving the inner outline of the image still there. At least that is what I see when I use your steps.

Your post is helpful because this particular aspect of PnC is not addressed in the manual that I received and I only found out by trial and error. Thanks!
