The years fly by, and here we are, left with the delightful legacy created by Jerry Bonham.
Since I began this journey into the realm of computer-cut lettering, I always have admired and appreciated his efforts to provide the cutting/sign-making community with an extremely useful application.

Although this thread has been left dormant, I just discovered a "How To Do It" item that would be nice to offer here --

Fonts sometimes need to be messed-around with, to create effects that aren't straight-line!
The easy way to perform this is type your word(s), select, and then go to the "ARRANGE" menu, choose "Convert to Curves"
Now, you can play around with the font in various ways (Double Click on each letter, and the entire node path is available).

In this example, I skewed the font, and then pulled a few of the corner nodes apart.
(After altering the node points, just return to "Select" and the results will be applied)

Have fun!
