So are you saying the problem is with SCAL opening the file, and not Inkscape?  If so  can you do a screen capture (print screen) and post it so we can see what you do?

I read some while back that there were problems using SCAL with Windows 7 and I saw it suggested that one runs Windows 7 in XP mode.  I am not sure if this is your problem or whether you might find a bit more information on a Google search.

Hi Again,

So Papasue, I posted a screen shot in my album cuz I had no idea how to attach it to a message.  I'm pretty thankful that I figured out how to do a screen shot!  On a funnier note, I just figured out today that SCAL was an acronym for Sure Cuts a Lot... duh :roll:
I'll get the hang of this one day!  I'm such a newb.

Hmmm,  it appears from the picture that your mat is 6x12 and you are not seeing the whole image on that size mat.  You didn't have the image selected so I can see the size in the properties box.  I suggest you try

 View/Fit to Window and see what you get.  
Or select the image and look to see what the size dimension is and using the keep dimensions boxes make the image the size that fits.  

the snowflakes are in a vertical row and that may be one of the issues for that small mat.

Let me know, I love a puzzle.

Maybe we take this offline and work PM as we are into SCAL and not Inkscape.  We'll see if this works for you first.

It looks a tad distorted too in your photo.  I am afraid I know absolutely nothing about SCAL.  As Susan says try making a bigger mat.  You could also try changing the document properties in Inkscape and moving the snowflakes into a horizontal line so that the snowflakes can be saved in landscape format.

Hi Kalycakes,  First, I would recommend that you use Inkscape 0.47 with SCAL1.  There are some compatibility issues with Ink48/SCAL1.  You can download Inkscape 0.47 here.  http://sourceforge.net/projects/inkscape/files/

The file did the same thing for me when I tried to import it into SCAL1.  I then opened it in Ink47 and selected each snowflake and used Path/Union.  Then I was able to see all three in SCAL1.  That is your first thing to try any time an svg won't import correctly into SCAL.  HTH
