I thought that it was my design and went back to a very small 2"x 2" and it loaded slower than before but it did work. I tried reloading the basic measuring tool from first print, and again it just hung their and became no responsive.
I have clear cache, rebooted computer and all, but it seems to either not want to load, or loads slowly after telling about the design having too many colors, etc, etc.
I am getting frustrated at this point, as I have no way to know if it is my unit, my computer or something else.
I wasted my whole day trying to sort this out and at this point I am going to let it set as an expensive paperweight, I have too much stuff to get done.
I am however open to any and all suggestions on what is the problem, as it is beyond me.
thank you everyone.
