Since I've got so many questions about the Print&Cut process in SCAL 2.038  I've copied& pasted... Kay's answer on SURECUTSALOTUSERS.... one of yahoo e-groups ( you know...my English is below criticism if I could write those instructions by myself...LOL):

"With the new print feature in scal I think the easiest way would be a hybrid of several methods listed on my print and cut page

File>place to bring in your image and size it for printing
then click the image button, bring in the same image again and trace it to create a cut line,
Set the trace to blackout under appearance or shadow blackout if you want a margin (good idea for beginners as this makes it more forgiving)
resize the trace to fit the placed copy (you have to eyeball it)
Use the layers eye icons to toggle layers on and off so that you print just the print layer and then toggle the print layer off and the cut layer on
At this point I would use the hinge method to line the 2 up. That way you don't have to worry about correcting for the inaccuracies in your printer or your Cricut.
