That is pretty much what I was saying after finding out the wonderful Samantha Script font couldn't be used in Make The Cut. Well, the font could be used which included the regular letters but it was all the gorgeous swirly, flourishy letters that I wanted to have possession of! After some research it was found that I would need a program like Adobe Illustrator to open the "glyphs", which are all the cool letters and such!
I found a free version, and very old version, of Adobe Illustrator and thought "this will be a piece of cake". I even watched a video tutorial that Jin of Under A Cherry Tree did showing how to convert what you wanted out of AI into an SVG. Only one problem, my version was different and didn't work quite the same way. My friend Pam who is techie, you might know her from The Bug Bytes, tried to give me instructions but yet again my version didn't have the options where she was telling me to go. I finally was just playing around and gave up on doing the SVG and decided to do the whole capture thing with the snipping tool and import the letters into MTC that way when I started clicking on a few things and POOF I found the tools I needed to make the outline and export as an SVG. You talk about excited!
When got all the capital letters opened in AI I looked like I had a jumbled mess but I wanted to see if I could export to SVG format and if the letters were overlapping if they would be single once imported into MTC.
This is what it looked like when I finally got it in MTC - a bit of a jumbled mess. I then had to figure out how I wanted to "organize" all the letters.
Now the odd thing is I have no idea if I will ever even use any of these letters. They are a big thin and swirly to use on cards or scrapbook pages but they would probably work great with vinyl projects. I guess I wouldn't give up because I do not like to hear "you can't do that" *okie sits with a smug smile on her face and thinks 'I was not defeated'*.
