I’ve done a bit of research to figure out my problem and so far this is what I got.
I realized that my GF was doing double passes on cuts because after using Image Trace on Illustrator, it made my circle and some other shapes have two lines instead of one. I found that the solution to this was to use Centerline Trace. HOWEVER, since I make my designs in Procreate and in color (so that GFUI knows what to cut and engrave), transfer it to Adobe draw, and then Adobe Illustrator, I realize I can’t change the Fills and Strokes settings under Image Trace unless I put it in the Black and White Mode.
Does anyone know how to go about keeping the colors but still being able to get that Centerline trace for the cuts?
