    In MTC it is possible to insert a word inside a 4 sided empty shape where the characters will be auto warped to fit exactly inside the box. Does this facility exist in SCAL.

    Many thanks

    BEFORE reading this post,  note my two newer posts below!

     

    Neither program has a function for this. In fact the only cutter software program that has it, as far as I’m aware, is SignCut Pro2.

    That being said, because this came up so often in the past, there’s a way to mostly make it happen in MTC, if you have some patience.  Watch this video I made:

    Wait!  I just reread your post and you said “4-sided box”…  There is a feature in MTC for 4 sided shapes. Let me find it for you.

    Found it… it’s called the Auto 4 Point Warp and is covered in Section 8.09 in this user manual:

    sure, there is one inside MTC I have used it and is works very well, unfortunately there is no similar function inside SCAL. and as I cannot seem to get MTC working on my Mac catalina OS I am forced  to bodge around with SCAL to produce a similar result.

    Thanks for reply

    The closest equivalent to MTC’s 4 Point Warp in SCAL would be the Distort Tool.

    Thanks Sandy you certainly are helpful. I haven’t been able to find anything that meets the “Auto 4 point wrap” tool in MTC, amazing.

    Sometimes Andy (owner of MTC) came up with some really cool stuff for MTC and for PCS.  It’s a shame he gave up on his software.

    I second that, if only it worked on a mac
