I have come to the conclusion you CANNOT use markers in CCR. The BEST you can do is use a single image that is only re-sized--not welded, or manipulated in any way. I don't know if PC actually told us we would be able to use MARKERS with the MINI, so maybe it's a moot point. Or, with any other machine.

I had always LOVED how my markers worked when I used my Expression manually. AND, I did do a horse for a Christmas Card that came out near perfect. I watched some videos last night (sorry, but I don't remember whose) and their markers/cuts came out perfect. I played around and wasted some pretty glitter papers and other papers in trying to get this to work this morning. I have stated on here multiple times markers were working for me---because I did that horse on the MINI before Christmas.

I'm wondering if the videos were done BEFORE BUILD 122. Can anyone who has made videos on this AFTER BUILD 122 let me know where to see them? I really want to get this working better. I plan to call PC tomorrow, too.

I was also sure I had used my EXPRESSION before the holidays to use the markers on that rocking horse. AND, I thought I had used it with CCR. That would have been with BUILD 116.

The last HSN presentation the mini package included markers.

Jinger demoed them on a single image not welded to anything.

They probably are not that advanced to do welded images yet.

When I have time I'm going to give it a try and see if I have any luck.

I'm still playing around, too. I actually discussed this with a representative in the offices at PC, because I called on another problem and I called direct to PC's offices, not CR. Mark is who I talked to. I let him know that the markers worked OKAY with a single image; but, if we weld, it just doesn't work. Additionally, on the single image, we can only resize--not distort by making the image wider or longer. Mark said he actually thinks the information might be useful and he was going to relay it; like they had not heard that before. I'm sure they know about it; but, he made it sound like that information was going to be VERY useful.

I also let him know my EXPRESSION (as well as others who have reported it here on the MB) have trouble with the mat spitting out; thus, not allowing us to use the markers if we wanted to CUT afterwards.

I am now having to do a work around for my valentines; going to use the markers to write out my messages and manually cut around the messages with my scissors that look like a stamp around the edges.

Good luck to all of us!
