    I just purchased my SCAL yesterday but I’m having difficulty controlling the speed & pressure when cutting. Because of this, my paper gets torn everytime. I’ve not been able to cut 1 page without damaging the paper. Is there something I’m doing or not doing? Please help, I’m getting fustrated.

      You can control the speed and pressure from within Sure Cuts a Lot. The speed dial on the Cricut does not work in conjunction with Sure Cuts A Lot.

      You can control the speed by clicking on the Edit option and selecting Preferences. Under the General Tab in the preferences section, you can adjust the cut speed.

    Now that I have imported SVG files and opened them, how do I actually put the files in the SVG files?
