  1. I now have a bit of an update. It seems that not everything gets created into curves - I'm assuming when exporting. If you look at the attached file, all parts are curves in the layers panel. In the SVG file if you upload it into a text editor, (I've renamed the SVG file into a txt file so it shows) the buffers and white light and red light are still ellipses. This is why they are not being seen correctly in Design Space and other cutting machine systems. Is there a way to force the shape to become a curve apart from Convert to Curves which I've already done? Is this a bug? Front_73.afdesign Front 73.svg Front 73.txt
  2. Didn't make any difference unfortunately. Thanks though. I always thought that SVG files were all read the same. It appears not.
  3. Thanks @Alfred, but that didn't work 😞 Now this one seemed to. A bit more testing required but may be a good option. As I want to sell some of my cut files, I really don't want people to download them and then find that bits are missing! Thanks so much all for your help. Very strange glitch and very annoying!
  4. I've come across an issue but not sure how to solve. When I create a shape in AD, convert to curves, copy shape, export to SVG, everything is fine. Cricut Design Space, AD, Inkscape and every SVG on line checker opens it fine. However, then a create a path using the pen tool, copy, flip and export both paths to Design Space, I get one path and one line. It will only work if I make them compound paths. Why is this? Again, everything opens fine in on line checkers even in AD. I've also converted the file to dxf in Inkscape and opened in Silhouette Design Studio and have a similar issue in that only one path is showing (no line this time). The line is strange as it is always on the left. I've spent ages looking for said line in AD when eventually I've worked out it not actually a line at all. The file is created in AD at 72dpi and exported within AD. I thought once anything is a curve then it should not matter that it was copied and flipped. Any thoughts? Copy of SVG below, original AD file and a photo of how it opens in DS. I think it may be a generic cutting machine issue as it happens in both Silhouette and Cricut but I would be interested if I'm missing a step creating the original file or SVG.
