How do I unzip files in Windows 10?

The ZIP file contains all the SVG designs in a compressed format. You need to unzip or extract the file contents to be able to use the files. Windows has a built-in capability to unzip (or extract) files from a compressed ZIP folder. No additional software is required.

  1. Open File Explorer and browse to the saved ZIP file.

Other FAQs & Tips

How do I use solid scoreline versions of our SVG files using Scan n Cut?

The files located in the solid_scorelines folder are the same files within the SVG Files folder with dashed scorelines, but they are just solid. Every file that has dashed scorelines will have a solid scoreline equivalent in the solid_scorelines folder.  Of course, you can just use the default files with dashed scorelines to cut the dashed fold lines.  The solid scorelines are just much cleaner looking than the dashed cut lines, if your machine is capable.

For Scan N Cut users, if you have an embossing tool, you may be able to use the solid lines. This would require changing the line type to a draw line to use the embossing tool. I have yet to find a video or details on the process, as I do not have a Scan n Cut. However, some of my Scan N Cut users have reported they use the embossing tool for solid scorelines.
