Glowforge software no longer separating steps

The Glowforge software no longer seems to be separating the steps in my uploaded projects. It is now grouping things together that should not be grouped. I need to cut one step and score another for instance. I cannot because the software is now grouping them together. Even on projects that I have done prior without this issue.

Does anyone else have this issue and know how to fix it? Thank you in advance!

makes the strokes different colors to group them manually. like make all the things you want cut blue and all the things you want scored red. that kind of thing.

I will give that a try. Thank you!

This is an example of how i separate out my cut files so i cut the inside of parts before the outside using the same technique.


That makes sense. I just tried it and that worked perfectly. Thank you so much. I have been working on this since yesterday. I have been getting so frustrated. Thank you for the example and quick reply. Your help is so very much appreciated! Have a great day!

Thank you. That is very true.

I have had my Glowforge for some time now. I just don’t use it nearly enough. I am trying to use it more and get better with it and with the Inkscape software! Slowly I am getting there!

ya there is a tremendous amount of brain power around this place.

mostly I just hide in the corner and make a couple luggage tags for my bags before I go to the range. LOL

I have so many dang projects in the design phase right now it is absurd.
