How to create a knock out effect in brother scan and cut canvas workspace

Posted on 1st November 2017
1- Open canvas workspace. Click on the text icon.


2- Type the text you would like to do the knock out effect in.


3- Resize your text.


4- Pick the design you would like to knock out. You can choose a file included in the software or upload your own SVG file. I am using one that is in the software.


5- Select the knock out design.


6- Place over your text. resize to fit your design. I have using the line colour tool so I can see the 2 designs clearly.


7- With both selected, right click and group.


8- With the grouped design selected, right click and duplicate.


9- Ungroup the duplicated design.


10- Select the design (not the text) and send to the front.


11- With the text and design selected go to process overlap and subtract.


12- As you can see the design is now cut out of your text.


13- Click on the other text group. Right click and ungroup.


14- Select the design and now this time send it to the back.


15- With both selected, go to process overlap and subtract.


16-  you will now have what looks like jumbled pieces of a design. This is fine they fill in the parts of your text above.


17- carefully align the parts into the cut out text. you now have your knock out effect to cut.
