01:41:20 creating a shape with words in it (word art) – examples – wedding dress filled with words, birthday cake filled with words) (see also worle.net and tagxedo.com). Also see later discussion @ 02:05:55 using blackout and weld
01:54:35 Is there a program to show “pics” or “thumbnail images” of a MTC and/or SVG file images. (Short answer is no – discussion as to why)
02:03:05 User asked why some MTC files would not show in the “Open” dialog box – Bryan said they all should work unless 1st page is blank or objects are off the mat. Send Bryan file where you have this problem. Email in his profile on forum.
