I just received sign tools 3 this week and thought I'd get back and tell everyone what I thought about it. First off, using Corel, its nice to be able to cut and not have to take that extra step and export to a program to plot. As far as plotting goes, the program offers the weed option before cutting. The only difference than I was used to with other sign programs, each line of text, and any lines or clip art all get their own weed border. Not one big border around the job. Also, unless I'm doing something wrong, the object or text you select to cut has to be in the lower left of the design area, or the plotter will start cutting vinyl not where you expect it to. I guess I'm trying to say origin or start point doesn't pertain, unless the object selected is in the lower left of the design box. It has the usual shadow, outline features, and some neat features to add stars, waves, two tone colors, brick look, metal look and several others to text. I also noticed an emboss feature, and I think a chrome look. I've never used Co-cut but what I read and hear I think it has some valuable aspects sign tools doesn't. But for under $200.00 sign tools can provide a pretty good way to cut in Corel. Just thought I'd share since I haven't heard to much about sign tools on the forums.
