    If they're not opposed to change, I'd drop one of the suns and put a horizon across the entire thing.

    Solid Vector, Instead of seperate

    What program are you using? In Inkscape, this is how I would do it. First select the 2 and the 4 and do a path->Union The green section is placed on top of part of the two so I would duplicate the green section and select it and the 2 and then do a path->difference I'd again duplicate the green section, change the new to a different color, then do path->inset. Repeat as necessary to get the thickness of green outline you like. Then select the green section and the small internal section and do a path->difference

    They are in one of the menus but are not active in the free version.

    Node shapes

    The small nodes are usually where there are two nodes that overlap each other. I don't get why they get created in cases like your example though.
  5. I have used some frosted galss vinyl and if you don't have good light behind it, ie, on a window you're looking into, it looks silver. You might suggest an outline color. Maybe white letters with a blue outline.

    having problem with signcut cutting joined text ??

    Did you try doing a search for this on here? Common problem people have and it's been explained several times. You need to convert your text to paths then weld/union them all together.

    Too many fonts to install

    I like AMP's option to allow you to view the fonts with what ever sample text you want. Makes picking/matching font pretty quick and easy.

    Store Front

    You could always do like most motorcycle shops, open Tues - Sat. You still get 2 days off, and with one being Monday it give you time to run around do the things you need that can't be done on a weekend.

    Old Ford Emblem

    Well that is most likely UK gallons so it's more like 29mpg. And actually carbs can get better fuel effecenticy than fuel injection. Fuel injection is easier to keep tuned and can makes more power.

    Barcode tracing?

    There is also a barcode font, Free 3 of 9 Extended that you could use.

    Pathing not coming up at all

    The stroke to path doesn't open a popup, it just converts the stroke you have selected into a path. The trace bitmap should open a window though. Have you tried reinstalling inkscape?

    change pdf

    Not all PDF files are vectors though. Open it with Inkscape and try to node edit it. If you can then just save as EPS, if you can't you'll need to trace it and create a vector.

    Pathing not coming up at all

    Are you trying to trace a bitmap, or convert a stroke to a path?

    file conversion

    Inkscape can save to PDF but you also need ghostscript setup to be able to open an EPS.

    SCUT3 to useable print file for Excel

    Not sure about SCUT3, but in inkscape you just need to set the background color to something that is not transparent then do an export bitmap. There were some stray noded I cleaned up before saving this off for you.

    new to Vinyl and looking for help!

    A quick google search for dishwasher safe vinyl finds several people have had luck with oracal 651. I also found a post that suggest the temperature at which the vinyl starts to loose it's adheasion is close to the temperature of most dishwashers so it's a hit or miss kind of thing. Some people with colder dishwashers won't have a problem, some with hotter ones will.

    I'm not sure any vinyl is going to stay on in a dishwasher.

    Controversial? I care not!

    I was almost those exact numbers 10 years ago. I lost 30lbs in about a week, hospital ICU food is not that fattining. Not a weight loss program I'd recommend.
