I have done this multiple times before with no issues.
Today, whenever I import something from Inkscape into the Glowforge App, it groups all those object together. The file has 3 different TEXT engravings that go onto 3 separate places on the project. (Each text is a short scripture from the Bible.)
Yes, I convert Objects to Paths inside Inkscape so the Glowforge will treat it as an object and not text. I’ve done this multiple times with no issues until today.
Yes, I have all 3 texts as different colors inside Inkscape.
I have tried grouping each text into a single group, so Glowforge will see 3 objects.
I have tried ungrouping everything before inporting to Glowforge.
I have tried separating them LITERALLY 6 inches away from each other inside Inkscape.
Glowforge continues to GROUP them together, so I can’t position them where each one goes.
I don’t have this issue with multiple shapes, for instance, just Text.
This is driving me insane. I finally gave up and am now just importing each single Text (Scripture) one at a time and engraving it, then move onto the next one.
Has something changed?
Is there another method to do this.
I made the EXACT same project last week with these EXACT same files, and Glowforge DID NOT group them this way then. But today… nope…
You guys are amazing. I will try this after this one finishes engraving.
I say that popup, but didn’t really know what it meant, other than it grouped them.
I was unaware that you could right click inside the app to get that option to ungroup.
I don’t have Premium.
Thanks for the answer @dan84 and @dklgood, you are both right! Thanks for your input. I’m going to close this thread - if you have further questions on grouping, go ahead and post a new topic, or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
