Text and Shape Cutter Tool

Text and Shape Cutter Tool

By Discovery Center Team

The Text and Shape Cutter tool now has a preview option, so you can see the area you are cutting before you apply your cutout. This is perfect for a collage, scrapbooking or other creative projects. Here’s how the Text Cutter tool works:

  • select the Text tool, font and font size
  • type in your text then position it over the background you wish to use
  • select the Text tool again and enable the Cutter Preview icon
  • once you are happy with your selection, click the Text Cutter icon
  • the cut out text appears as a new image window, which you can save, or copy and paste right away into a project
