Re: How to

Julie Flanagan
 

If the regular does not work, try the Boolean weld. If the Boolean weld first option doesn't work, try the second. One of those almost always works. It is that simple.

I don't have the forum link for you, because I am not sure which one you are looking for.

Okay I understand the join and I understand the weld.  I'll think about boolean later.
 
And I have to admit,  humble looking right now, that I found all of rachellann's posts or started posts, but I don't know which one it is.
 
Would you post the link to the thread.  So close but so far!   lol

Join groups the shapes together, but does not weld them together on the screen, but the pieces will cut separately. Boolean Join has several special welding functions that eliminate the lines where the two objects are connected, so that when they are cut, the pieces will cut a one piece.

Bryan,
 
Okay - I was going to ask you to repost the link to that thread but I just realized I can do a search looking for all of Rachellann's posts and find it that way.
 
Could you explain to me the difference between just the join and a boolean join?
 
Thanks

If it's Friday, you're suppose to be Happy, not Grouchy!

It really isn't that hard to look things up on the forum - there is a search option that works really well.  When I answered this email yesterday morning, I was on my way out the door for work, so I didn't have time to give a full blown answer (or to even look up the thread in the forum that I referenced).   The answer I gave might not have helped you, but I thought some answer was better than no answer at all, and I thought it might have helped any of the 75+ attendees of the webinar that might have been wondering how to do this type of project.  Rachellann also put time into documenting a similar procedure with pictures, which is posted on the forum, so that is why I referenced that thread.

The basic procedure for this would be to do the following:
- type the text you want, in the font and size you want (I suggest using all capital letters so the bottoms of the letters are all line up)
- shadow the text with a thin shadow
- select both the shadow and the text and do a Join
- add a rectangle and make it as long as the text.  Overlay just the bottom of the text with the rectangle, and do a Boolean  Join (A-B Difference, or B-A Difference) - you want to end up with most of the text, with just the bottom of the text "missing"
- add a long thin rectangle that will become the ribbon circle
- move the text onto the rectangle where you want it
- select the text and the rectangle and do a Join
- cut the "ribbon"out, and score along the bottom of the letters.

That should work.

Let me know if you have any questions - but only if you're not grouchy any more ;-)

I think it's great that you all do webinars, have a forum, etc., but for those of us that can't "live" on our computers at home (like we have jobs and families and chores), I do wish you all would answer questions on this list more directly rather than directing us to a webinar that hasn't been posted or to the forum where we have to dig for a thread. Links are nice; direct answers are better. Isn't that what this list is for?

I saw this really neat project on a blog and wanted to know if anyone had any ideas how to design it on MTC.


I'm thinking it's more like a cupcake wrapper.

Hi...I keep checking to see if the last info webinars are online yet and have not found them.  Have
they been released yet?  I have a bible study on the night you do them and cannot view them when they
are live.  I want to also thank you for all the help you have given to us as we learn how to use MTC.  I just
love the program and the reason is the support that is available!!  Your the Best!
Thanks, Donna

Re: How to

S. Bryan Williams <sbw1@...>
 

If it's Friday, you're suppose to be Happy, not Grouchy!

It really isn't that hard to look things up on the forum - there is a search option that works really well.  When I answered this email yesterday morning, I was on my way out the door for work, so I didn't have time to give a full blown answer (or to even look up the thread in the forum that I referenced).   The answer I gave might not have helped you, but I thought some answer was better than no answer at all, and I thought it might have helped any of the 75+ attendees of the webinar that might have been wondering how to do this type of project.  Rachellann also put time into documenting a similar procedure with pictures, which is posted on the forum, so that is why I referenced that thread.

The basic procedure for this would be to do the following:
- type the text you want, in the font and size you want (I suggest using all capital letters so the bottoms of the letters are all line up)
- shadow the text with a thin shadow
- select both the shadow and the text and do a Join
- add a rectangle and make it as long as the text.  Overlay just the bottom of the text with the rectangle, and do a Boolean  Join (A-B Difference, or B-A Difference) - you want to end up with most of the text, with just the bottom of the text "missing"
- add a long thin rectangle that will become the ribbon circle
- move the text onto the rectangle where you want it
- select the text and the rectangle and do a Join
- cut the "ribbon"out, and score along the bottom of the letters.

That should work.

Let me know if you have any questions - but only if you're not grouchy any more ;-)

do the letter pop-up cards - minus having to add the tabs at the
top of the letters, and only slicing off the bottom of the
letters. If you weren't on the webinar, you can also look at
Rachellann's thread on it that was posted on the forum a day or
two after the webinar.

This is me: -

I think it's great that you all do webinars, have a forum, etc., but for those of us that can't "live" on our computers at home (like we have jobs and families and chores), I do wish you all would answer questions on this list more directly rather than directing us to a webinar that hasn't been posted or to the forum where we have to dig for a thread. Links are nice; direct answers are better. Isn't that what this list is for?

It's Friday, and I'm a bit of an ol' grouch, I guess. :8~\

Re: Refillable Ink Cartridges Thank you

swisher_tammy
 

I have a Brother printer (I highly would never recommend this brand to anyone) and have refilled their ink cartridges before and had them leak. My printer still seams to work just fine though. I do have to do one thing different. Ever since I have used the no name brand ink the first time on this printer it will not let me print just in Black for copies. If I am scanning and copying a page I must press the color button for it to print. If I press the blank ink button it acts like and takes it's time like it is printing, but there was always a blank page that came out. If I use colored ink to print black the color comes out a little different then jet black, but I don't even notice the difference anymore these days, because I am so used to it. The pictures I scan in from my digital camera still come out great so I don't care. I just know I will never buy a Brother product again. Sales people, they will get you if you don't do your research first.

By what I have been told by people at Cartridge World theres do not void the
warranty. The electronic chip (the gold piece) on the cartridge has to be
reset on some printers but not others so I don't see there being a way for
them to find out. I've even had OEM cartridges leak or just not work. I
will always refill my cartridges if possible just because its cheaper and
works just as good.

Thank you to all who replied to my question. I know that using any ink than
the recommended brand would void a warranty. My printer is old and the
warranty is long gone. My question is I wonder how a company would know
weather or not you are using their ink or another brand if you don't tell
them. I wonder if there is a sensor that can tell? Does anyone here know?
Just curious. Thanks for all the helpful information.
