A Helpful Guide to Cricut Design Space Operation Types
A lot of confusion regarding the operation feature stems from a change to the main menu. The Operation dropdown menu used to be called "Line-Type," but the new feature functions similarly: it allows you to choose the cut edge you want. Ten different options include basic cut, wavy edge, perforate, pen, foil, score, deboss, engrave, print then cut, and guide. I also have a separate section on using the "Guide" feature, an important tool for Cricut projects.
