I can’t figure something out and it’s driving me insane!! I am trying to make a small gift card envelope and I am trying to make a dashed square in Illustrator. My problem is that when it cuts the dashes it cuts little tiny rectangles instead of just a line. Does anyone know how to convert dashed squares into plain lines to cut?
If you just expanded the dashed lines then little rectangles is what AI made.
The easiest way to get true dashes is with a custom brush.
I saw that post and I already tried that but it still doesn’t work for me. I don’t know what I am doing wrong.
Which step is failing?
Let me try this again. The step that I couldn’t get was make a new layer and delete the old. There is no “old”. I got it to cut the lines but glowforge cut them twice, it would go back and forth. How do you get it to go just forward (just once)
I tried the custom brush but when I made a square it looked like a Picasso painting! Maybe my line was too long. How can I edit the length of my brush once created?
