4- Your SVG file will appear in your design space as one file. Select the SVG file and then click on the " Ungroup" icon. This will separate the individual cut files. You may need to repeat clicking on the "Ungroup" icon several times until the file is fully ungrouped.

5- Once the file is ungrouped, you can change the colour of each individual cut file, remove or duplicate pieces, resize pieces or move them around the design space.

7- In advanced setting you can cut your SVG file by fill colour and therefore you do not need to ungroup your SVG file. Each colour will appear separately and you can tick or untick each colour depending on which part of the SVG file you would like to cut.
