Clicking in VCP 8.5 on Open Application Data Folder it comes up with C:\ProgramData\Vectric\VCarve Pro\V8.5 but some gadgets install in C:\Users\Public\Documents\Vectric Files. Copying the gadgets from C:\Users\Public\Documents\Vectric Files to C:\ProgramData\Vectric\VCarve Pro\V8.5 makes it work . ...

Re: VCarve toolpath won't print all the fonts

Re: How to modify clipart coming with VCP8
