Re: Downgrading

If you have Aspire 8.5 you don't have to upgrade. Just keep using it and it will work fine. Like one other guy said he is using version 3.5 SO you wouldn't gain anything by down grading besides spending money. Keep aspire and use it till you grow out of it. It's not a leased product so you can use i...

Re: Problems with a large 3D relief carving

The software manual explains Draft and how it is applied. A quick look-up will help you (it’s easy). I have accessed the online user guide and cannot locate any discussion on draft. I've mastered other skills so once the process is explained I'm sure I'll be able t o implement it. I'm not doing any...

You responded to my PM but now it appears I can't read PM's Capture.PNG so I'll ask you to copy your reply here too. Your Recommendations: 1. fix the machine issues i...

Re: Problems with a large 3D relief carving

Jim, This thread may help. In particular, read the PDF document in the thread: Aspire Model Resolution, Pixel size, and Rectangular Jobs I followed the link above and it was enlightening. I don't understand how to force the resolution in the job setup above 7X (4,000,000 pixels) or is that the max ...

Re: how to use Napali fonts in Aspire 9 text box

Yes they are true type fonts. That's why they display in these messages and in word pad. I can't find anything in the aspire help file to explain this. I downloaded the foreign language font so that's not the issue.

This is what I get. the font is a Napali font.
