Using Attach to Cut Text Out of a Shape

Attach is a great function that can be used to hold mat placement and to fasten a write or score line to a cut layer. It can also be used to quickly cut text or images out of another image.

All you need to do is put the words on the image, drag a bounding box around it, and click “attach.” You’re ready to cut! If you need to make changes, just detach and edit the text.

You may have used slice before to cut words out of a shape, but it’s more steps and can’t be easily changed later.
