Getting a "threading water" square from Storybook using the new Design Studio Features

Here's a little demo of how to use one of the new Design Studio features.

First, we are going to select the following image from the Storybook cartridge.

Now, click on the butterfly image in the middle:


Now, we're going to right click on the butterfly. The box that you are familiar with because it is where you name the page, select whether or not you want to include that page in the preview, etc., will come up.


Now click on "hide selected contour". Once you have done that, the butterfly will change from a reddish color to purple.

But, if I click on the outer image (that scalloped square that is the outermost "contour" on the shape), here is what it will look like:


Below is the image that will cut. I am showing you this in "preview" mode so that you will get a better idea of what actually will cut.


And now you have created a "threading water" square from your Storybook cartridge!!
