TRICK: You can delete any part of an image. Did you guys know this?!
It is super helpful when you are trying to simplify a cut. For instance, I was using this image:
I love the design, but needed 6 of them. It was taking me forever to peel away the extra heat transfer material with all of the tedious cuts. So, after making 2 large ones…I decided to delete parts of the design.
Here is what you do:
There are actually 2 magic buttons…the group and the ungroup. First, use the arrow to make a box around the entire object. Go to object and click ungroup. Your image will look like the above picture. Then you can go about deleting whatever you want! You can see that I deleted the 2nd row of tiny triangles and the 3 triangles between the arrow head shapes.
Once you delete what you want…you will have to regroup the image to make copies.
