hi mb20music....thanks for the info. you are right...i was able to use the pen tool just as i would the blade. i set the pressure to 70 and it worked just fine. found out there is no way for the cutter to draw a single line...it actually "draws" a line on the outer edges of any line in the design as if it were cutting...so you get a double line where you have just one line on the screen. thanks again for you help. :D

The cutter is a machine designed to follow nodes and paths ---  a "line" is not a one-dimensional thing. Lines have width, even if it's a very minor width.

Use the "Polyline" tool. Shift-click to draw a straight line, right-click and choose "finish". Anything you want to draw will need to be a single path like that. It can be simple or complicated, but a line it must be.

I've done a little drawing with Sign Blazer. I use freezer paper and draw on the non waxed side. Did a long banner once for my wife's Sunday school class to color in the letters. It's good for testing projects before cutting too.
