More Cricut Gypsy Tips

Here is another tip with your G
When you press the zoom button and tap 4 times i.e the max. as far as zoom can go - the squares match up exactly to scale. You can then take a ruler and measure up against the figure. This is very helpful while designing.
You can measure for eg how much of a image gets overlapped in welding or you can measure the height or sides of a triangle, octagon or hexagon  without the need to whip out your calculator and ruffling through those complicated :) (this coming from an engineer - well look how far I've fallen into this art world) mathematical formulas.
Ok - a question here to you all (if any of you are here ie :) )
Are any of you really reading my blog? I don't see any comments so don't know if I'm passing on useful info.. Should I continue posting? I don't want to write to myself. I would much rather paint

I just got my gypsy yesterday (early Christmas gift) and I have been on your site all night reading about the gypsy. I have learned a lot about what I can do. Thank you for all your work and please keep posting.

I have read each of your posts. I just don't comment much on sites. I've learned mostly all I know about the gypsy from you and thank you very much for that. But you should be painting and enjoying yourself instead of worrying about us if you want to be painting! Happy holidays!

Pam,
Thank you for sharing your knowledge with this newbie who can't quite get over the "fear" of using this new Gypsy! I have been quite overwhelmed by it all, but you are helping me work through it. Thank you for your time and effort in making it easier for those starting up behind you! You are a gem!

Pam,
Keep up the GREAT Posts. I would like to see more w/o the use of CDS as I'm a MAC user and can't use that program.
Thanks, your methods are often guidelines for me to go forward and explore my possibilities.
