I have a question about how to do something in Silhouette Studio (SS) that I hope someone knows.
I want to break an object into separate lines and then remove some of those lines. For example, I have a square that was drawn using the rectangle tool. Is it possible to break that up into 4 lines so I can remove one of them?
I know I could just draw each side with separate lines but it seems difficult to make sure the lines meet properly. Unless there is a trick to doing that?

I do this all the time. Super useful. Draw your shape, then edit the points in the shape. Right-click on a grey point on the shape and select "Break Path". You've now started to sever the shape... Do this again on another point. Sometimes, if you're doing two adjacent points, the software will re-attach the first point... You can break them both at the same time by holding the Shift key and dragging to select points. Once you've got a couple selected, you can right-click on one of the selected points and do the "Break Path" trick.
Once you've broken the path in at least two places, do Object > Release Compound Path... (Ctrl+Shift+E).
This will give you separate shapes for all the disconnected lines.
It's easier to do than to describe in words, so let me know if I've said something that doesn't make sense!

Vermin King: I sent Mauther an email. My guess is that it will be inaccessible while he is migrating things over to Blogger

wyvern: Today though, the Papermau blog is no longer accessible unless you have an invitation (and of course you can't get one unless you visit the blog, Catch 22). Anyone got any better news about it?

wyvern: I know Papermau's blog has been having problems because of virus infections lately - it's fired-up my antivirus system every time I've visited there for some weeks, though he did write and say the problem was resolved a while back (it wasn't).

Vermin King: I suppose it could have been worse. She could boost someone up in a positive uplifting supportive manner...

Vermin King: Okay ... double negatives are bad, but how about triple saying the same thing. I just heard someone on TV saying, 'I found we really boosted each other up in an uplifting supportive manner'. And that was probably meaningful to her. duh

Vermin King: Back in my younger days, I tried to get 'Trick or Drink' running. We would go door to door in costume with our Halloween-themed rocks glasses in hand.

shep: On the other hand, Halloween is not that big for kids, here in Germany, anyways. It's more an excuse for teens and young adults to dress up and have a party... and for the latter ones to get drunk beyond speaking their native tongue...

shep: "A ninja, a mage, a knight, and a fish enter a tavern..." Wait this is no joke??!? Great costumes! The kids in my neighborhood were, as always, either too shy or too lazy to climb up into the third floor (40 steps, man, 40 steps!)...
