Hi!! I just received my Glowforge and have to admit I’m a bit intimidated as it is all new to me including Inkscape… so to start with, I decided to follow the glowforge tutorial “how to make a tag from scratch” and everything seems fine but by the time I hit “upload” the following message appears :
" This design has text. The text has been removed. To print text, you can use design software to expand the text to outlines before saving. ".
So, I clicked on “learn more” and followed the following instructions, but still nothing:
- Converted the text ( In Inkscape, click and drag inside your text box to select all of your text, then choose Path > Object to Path)
*Assigned a stroke to my text (To engrave, select your text, set a color for the fill, and choose “none” for the stroke)
*Saved my file and uploaded it again (Save your updated design as an SVG)
What am I doing wrong? Spent all morning on something I believe should be very basic
Thanks for your help, I can’t wait to get started!!
