I’m new here. Is there a magic color combo in Inkscape that will tell GF to JUST cut and not engrave? I’ve tried a few things with no success. I don’t need it engraved, just cut out. What am I missing? Thanks in advance for your help. - Sam
To cut, you will need a vector with a stroke color specified and no fill color.
A vector that has no stroke color but does have a fill color will come into the GFUI as an engrave, but you can change it to a cut in the UI:
Raster graphics like JPGs and PNGs will only engrave, and cannot be cut.
There are a bunch of inkscape tutorials here on the forum if you search “inkscape tutorial”.
Here’s one of them that has a video and might be what you need to get going.
You seem to already have the answer but welcome to our forum.
