the video show many tricks to manipulate the text in Lightburn in a much quicker way then Inkscape with instant showing on the monitor screen. Lightburn well worth the $60. just another tool to make things fun for new projects.

Very much agree! It's fun to interact and learn some new things - and this group of guys never fail to come thru with new and useful information.
Keep up the good work!

Tom - I agree that LightBurn has some capabilities and handy tools lacking with Inkscape. I'm just so used to using Inkscape, so for me I import to Inkscape to check it out first - then export to Design Edge for cutting. If I didn't have Design Edge, then I would most definitely be using SheetCam for creating tool paths. They are all fun to use.
