Cricut : Tip for the day

When you want to cut a box or purse and if you want the biggest size - you chose fit to page .Most of us already know that. But we have to wait for it to cut and then see what the size is which sometimes is either too big or too short.
Is there a way to find out?
For people having windows - yes there is. For MAC users - hope you have your G.
So the 1st group (windows user). Even if you do not have a paid version of CDS, download the trial version and  add the figure. Increase the size (try not to move with the handles if you do not know how to lock the aspect ratio) and see note the height when it fills up the mat. That will be the size at which the cricut is going to cut. You can then see the box on the mat and figure out how wide the box is, the height, sides etc.
For Mac - just use your G  or keep bombarding PC till they give you a MAC version. If they can do almost the same program features with G why not with CDS? So flood their phone lines. LOL . Oh! wait a minute. Their phone lines are already flooded. ;) :)
