When trying to weld 2 border shapes the new shape loses some of its contours.
I tried clicking around them to see if I could reselect them,doesn't work. Any ideas?

Cynsurfer - Did you GROUP your welded images? I forget the way most GROUP, but I click on the first image (left click to get a box around it), then holding down my control key on my keyboard, I click on the second image. This puts a big box around everything (or, if you have more than two images you welded together, you need to hold the control key down and click on each image until you get them all with one big box around all images).

After you get all images clicked, go to the top and hit GROUP.

Sometimes, when we're click on four or five images we've welded together, they get so close together it's hard to click all of them. In this case, start your first click on the smallest image and work your way around to all of them in that way.

I think you will now be able to CUT everything you welded together. Please let us know if this works or doesn't work. It may help others and/or we need to help you further.

Hope this helps.

Can you tell me which cartridge you are using?

Ok, I found the cart & shape you were using. I'll take a look at it when I get back from taking my kids to school. (Same thing happened to me by the way...)

Did you happen to try cutting it?

I'm home now so I'll take a look. As I said I got the same result on my screen as you did in your original picture. Unfortunately I don't have that cart but I did have the same problem using an object from a different cart so I'll work with that.

I do know that there is a similar problem when welding objects in Design Studio. The trick there is to change the order in which you place the objects on the mat.

Stay tuned! Smile

I experimented with a welded border from Elegant Cakes, and one from Accent Essentials, both cut with contours intact.
Every border I tried with Martha Stewart Elegant Cakes, and Martha Stewart Seasonal Cake, did not.

Thank you, I have both the Martha Stewart carts and was having the same problem. I thought it was me and so I didn't report it. I thought that I just didn't have enough knowledge of CCR to get it right. So it must be a problem within CCR

Wow! I thought I was the only one on this board! Especially being in California, not too many of us out here. Though I was born and raised in NY. Good to meet you! I call my cricuts "los coquis". Trained my family to call them that too. Whenever my mother sees something I made she asks me "hiciste eso con uno de los coquis?" They think I'm nuts!
