RET (Recursive Editing Technology)

When you create an effect in Version 6, a shadow for example, it is linked to the original object. This means that if you later edit the original object, Version 6 will automatically update any effects that are linked to it.
This simple idea is a terrific time saver. How often does your customer make minor changes to your proofs? Now with Version 6 you can make your edits in seconds without having to re-create the effects!

WYSIWYG Text Editor

Allows you to enter and edit text directly into the layout. Individual characters and words can be selected and manipulated in the same way as a word processing package. Font styles, size, spacing, baseline shift and slant angle are all easily adjusted on screen. Automatic kerning is complemented by the ability to create and save custom kerning pairs for any font on your system. Placing text along a curve or around a shape is as easy as clicking a mouse button and you can even create and edit your own fonts.

Galleries

Powerful galleries allow you to add objects and effects to your layout in seconds!
Simply drag and drop clipart to your layout. Create your own libraries with fully editable objects. Any kind of data can be added to a library.
Use effects libraries to drag and drop fills, transparencies and transitions to objects for quick, consistent results.

Direct Scanning

The built-in TWAIN Twain is the industry standard for communications with scanners and other forms of picture input devices. Some digital cameras also use the TWAIN interface to allow images to be loaded directly into the program. interface means you can easily retrieve images from TWAIN sources such as scanners and digital cameras.

Image Tracing

You can easily convert (trace) bitmap An array of colored square dots or "pixels", the arrangement of which forms a recognisable image. Bitmap images cannot be cut and are not scalable without loss of quality. images to high quality outlines suitable for cutting. You can convert black and white (line-art), greyscale and even colour images.

Node Editing

Powerful editing tools give you total control over outlines. Individual lines, curves and nodes can be manipulated to any degree for perfect results. The interactive mode allows you to apply changes to many similar components saving time and ensuring consistency.

Shadows

Every conceivable shadow effect is available through a simple "Rollup". Automatic welding produces cuttable outlines every time, without overlapping lines. Offsets and surrounds are easily defined and you can decide whether you want your shadow effect to butt join or overlay.

Welding

Fully comprehensive welding tools allow you to merge, subtract and intersect multiple objects.

Distortions

Choose from perspective, envelope and sphere effects to create any kind of distortion. You can even apply distortions to bitmap images.

Gradient Fills

Create colourful graduated fills using "drag and drop" colouring. You can add as many colours as you wish as well as control the position and angle of the effect.

Texture Fills

Use any bitmap image to create a texture. total control of the size, shape and angle of the texture is offered via a simple graphical control.

Transparent Fills

Transparency values can be given to any object (including bitmaps) allowing objects beneath to "show through". You can also apply graduated and shaped transparent fills. Combine transparent fills with gradient fills for endless possibilities and you can even apply transparent textures.

Advanced Cutting Features

A wealth of features are included to make vinyl sign production a breeze. Colour separation, flexible tiling, weed borders, multiple copies, data spooling, rotation and resize to name but a few.

Print and Cut

The "cut around" attribute is used to define cutting contours for printer/cutter devices. It is also used for calibrating a printed graphic for contour cutting on a separate cutting plotter
