SLF Magnolia Sky
This font comes with a single-line design of a hand-drawn border of magnolia leaves. I hope you enjoy these as much as I enjoyed creating them for you! And most of all, I can’t wait to see your creations using them.
Because true type format fonts must have what we call “closed paths”, these will draw the line 2 times in the exact same place.
Installation (Windows): Right-click on the file and click “Unzip” and then “Install”. (Mac): Double-Click on the zipped file and drag the font file to the Font Book. Open or restart your program and use your new font. Your font can be found in drop-down text boxes within your software.
FONTLAB PAD FORMAT:
Simple, free app in which you type out true single line text. Export as an SVG file. Import into your chosen software. You can find more info on this method on our Single Line Fonts website and also on YouTube.
OPEN PATH FORMAT (OPF):
Your cutter will go over the lines only one time. OPF fonts are not installable in Windows or on Macs in the same way that TTF or OTF files are. OPF format will work in these programs only:
Make The Cut
Sure Cuts a Lot
Of these three, Sure Cuts a Lot (SCAL) is the only program that is still actively being supported. Although there is a small learning curve, there are great SCAL help groups on Facebook. SCAL is a great option for true single line font work if you use a lot of text.
Sure Cuts a Lot: Copy and paste the OPF file in your Documents\Craft Edge\My Fonts folder. Go to the text menu, find OPF font, select Load Font.
Pazzles InVue: Right-click on the font file, select: Open With, then Choose Another App, then Pazzles InVue. When asked if you would like the font to be installed in InVue, select Yes. The font is permanently added.
Make the Cut: Find the “Text and Fonts” tab. Underneath the installed fonts listing, find the 2nd box from the right that says “Add font from TTF File” and click on it. Locate the OPF file. On the bottom left, you may elect to permanently install it in Make the Cut. Double click on the file to install.
