Changing Starting Point

Every path has a starting point. When a path is cut, the plotter will start cutting from the starting point. In an open path, the starting point must be at one end of the path.

  1. Use the Select Tool to select a path, or the Select Point Tool to select a point or segment.
  2. Select the Change Start Point tool.
  3. Click and drag the starting point to its new position.

    Hold Shift and drag to move the starting point to an existing point.

  4. Click Apply or double-click anywhere inside the design area.
