How to widen foil lines in SCAL4 Posted on 17th January 2020 1- Open SCAL4. Click on the text icon. 2- Type your text. 3- Click on the color/fill icon. 4- With your text selected, click on the fill tool and select white or no fill. 5- Change the font to the one you need to widen the foil lines. I am using Allspice from fontbundles.net 6- With the text selected, click on effects - shadow. 7- A new window will pop up. Make sure shadow is selected in the drop down box.There is a shadow size. Select this. 8- You can select the size of the gap between the original text and the "shadow". 9- Set the size to as little as you can. Once you are happy click OK. 10- As you can see the new line is very close to the original line. 11- in preview mode you can see the 2 lines close together also. this will mean when you foil the lines will appear to be one thicker line. 12- Once you have finished go to file - export. 13- Save as a SVG file. 14- Save at 72dpi. Make sure design space compatible if using in design space. You can now import into your plotter/cutter software and foil with the lines appearing thicker.
