Hi there, guys. In today's video, we'll be looking at vinyl cuts. Nondestructive wilding feature. Just a quick intria. Mm mm. So this video and more videos like this can be found on softwaretraining.co.za. We'll see. We've got quite a quite a variety of different Softwares. Do we do cover. And also, we do, uh, played upload videos daily, so just keep our eye there for new content. Otherwise, back here on the programme. Now, if, uh let's say you have, like, a logo design you're busy working with and you would like it to be, uh, cut out like a sticker, but you don't want to cut out the word and the star and all of that individually wanted us one piece. So then what we can do? A nice little feature is the wilding feature in vinyl. So we just headed to the preview. So by default, resuming? Yeah. Can I see? See, this is gonna be all the places where your final cut is going to be cutting. So it's gonna cut right over the letters and the letters gonna cut into the star. And we're although the font joined especially with cursive type funds. This is very important. You'll see that it's gonna make quite a mess of the final cut. So then what we can do. For instance, let's say you you select your fun to the selection tool, then under the properties panel here on the right, if we click style, then you will notice we've got an option called while. So now, if you select that and then we had to preview again, you will notice on the font. The older overlaps is now grade out. So now it will cut this font as one shape, but you'll notice that it's still cutting through the star, so that's, you know, that will be able to solve a problem. So to address that you can also select multiple objects. So this works with shapes and text mix, but unfortunately, images, so only any vector based or path based graphics. So if you're importing a PdF or SPG, this should all work. So now to have it with multiple objects, you can select your both objects, so either you can, um, select the wine and keep shifting and select another and you're on R layers to have you on the right. You will notice that we have the star and it takes selected. You can also select year and do the same. Keep shifting and select the star. And both of them are selected. And with all the objects that you wanna while selected together, then we go back here to our style properties. And then under its options, this click says just the right Mark Wilding. So now they will be welded together. So if we go back to preview now, we can see it's gonna cut this all artists one shape so the words will be part of the star. And then, um, if you were making an actual sticker, you would obviously put some form of white border or something, so that the whole graphics in one. But if you want to do a more complex one where you want the words and the stars separate and this is a great option and the nice body like I mentioned, it's non destructive, so you can still go in with your text tool. If you let's say you made a spelling mistake or you're changing the word, then you can do that can change the shape reposition it. And then if you go to your preview, we'll see is now still wild, but smartly. So, yeah, that's the basics of the wilding tool. It's a great feature, great tool, and it saves you a lot of times, and it's non destructive, so you don't have to merge things. Scare, therefore, unify them or union them before cutting, which means you still have a lot of room for editing afterwards. If let's say the client wants changes or something like that, otherwise, if we head over here to our website, if you visit softwaretraining.co.za t CEO today, you can find this video and more videos like this. As you can see down here, we've got quite a wide range of different Softwares we'll be covering. You can also go on top right here to our search and look for something specific. You can type in what you're looking for, and if you don't find any uh, topics we're covering yet or a topic that we're not covering, then you can always request a training video, and then we'll make that video for you. Otherwise, thanks guys, for watching and cheers
