Objects to Path - New Feature of Sure Cuts a Lot V4.015

I am currently doing a happy dance!

OBJECTS TO PATH! YAY!

We have been waiting for this feature for so long and now we have it!   Praise where it is due, SCAL 4 is pushing forward, not resting on it's laurels.

This is an impressive feature and although I have made a video of the basics, I've not yet had the time to explore it fully, it has literally just been released.


Another change is in the Stencil Bridge Tool. It now works in both ways, the easiest way to explain this is with a picture. The words were identical  - then I used the tool to alter them. 

In the left version, all the letters are now joined up - if you were cutting out vinyl, this could be very useful. In this instance the word was boxed and the path excluded before using the stencil bridge.
The second one the bridge was applied to the standard word to open the closed forms of the 'e's and 'a'. This one could be cut to act as a paint stencil.
