The Auto Fit function will resize a shape or selection of shapes to fit the boundaries of the Cutting Mat with a slight margin.
This is a great feature if you have a design and want to quickly scale it to the Mat size, or you want to change the designs back vinyl color with a shape without having to align edges.

Hi guys. Today's video is final cut. We'll be looking at the order fifth option, but let's just have a quick intro first so today's video can be found on softwaretraining.co.za. Not See here that z A. We have a variety of different Softwares we do cover and also we upload videos daily, so just keep your eye there for any content. Otherwise, we're back in the programme here. So now this is a great feature if you have a design and you want to fit it to the mat quickly and then so that where you know you're not wasting any cutting space or so forth whatever you're needs off. But then, in order to do that, let's just hide these arrows. Select your shape, then you want to go on top year to object, transform and you navigate to the bottom where it is part of. If you select that you'll see it, it's just shape to the mat. So now let's say you've got the text and you want to also do it with it. Then you will have to do it as a group, so make a selection box over both shapes. Make sure it goes over both because if it doesn't, they will not select. Or you can click on your layers on the right panel here and then click on the shape and then keep shifting and selected text, and you wanna group it. You can either use control G, or you go on top here to object again and you navigate a group. Okay, Now, just now, Layers, uh, to make sure that layout is right. So as you can see it through the text under the shape so select the texting were higher than your shape. Then we can just click on the shape because there's a group now will select all over and keep in mind if we'll right click, go to transform What a fit will not be there. So just in case you're using that method and you don't know why I can't find it. So you want to go on top object transform or if it and there you go, you've got a nice design it whether it takes this, uh, to your mat. But there is something to keep in mind. If you can't do this, let's say your mat is not perfectly square. So let's say you've got 12 fucking form, and then when we go to the path transformed, I'm sorry, objects transformed and then order fit. They will see it or if it's your entire design, so this can be a bit of a problem. What I would normally do is I would just select one of these scale buttons, especially if it's horizontally and wydell that one off. It's very clear I'll grab that, and then you can just grab that and re drag it to the right size. But in general, just keep that in mind. If your canvas is not the right size, um, or not perfectly square, it's gonna stuff that you're designed to the Met. Otherwise, that's it. An order fit. So if we go here to final cut Celia Programme is freely available, there just had to download page, otherwise under final cut of c o dot z. A. You guys can find this video and more like it. And like I mentioned, we do have a variety of different Softwares we cover, and also we have a search option here if you look at for any specific. So if you wanna touch the order foot or something like that. You just typing yet? Hello, magnifying glass. But then if you still come short and you don't find the video, I just got a request, a training video, and then we'll make that for you. Otherwise, thanks, guys, for watching and cheers.
