The complete file contains all the individual SVG files so you can easily upload or import one single file versus several. The single SVG files are still included for those that may still need them, such as ScanNCut users. Once you unzip the file, look for the Complete File folder within SVG Files folder. Within the folder, there are 2 versions of the complete file, one with dashed scorelines and one with solid scorelines. The solid scorelines are for machines or software that have scoring tools and options, like the Cricut machines.
