Default Wher can I find step by step directions for LEDTool4?

I've been searching high and low for written instructions on how to use LEDTool. Where can I find it? Just getting started with rhinestones and don't want to invest in the other programs... Can someone help me with it?

Did you check with where you purchased it? I think that is from MacroMonster, did you ask on their forums for help?

I'm sorry! I bought that macro but I haven't had time to play with it yet!

I've searched macromonster.com and was unaware of any forums. The website gives visual demonstrations but nothing in the way of detailed directives. I've played with it a little but have no clue on how to get it to work like demonstrated.
I'll even be happy with little tidbits of advise!

Aren't there little tutorial videos on the website? I remember seeing short videos but I don't remember what they showed!

Thanks for your suggestions on going to the forum. There's not to much in the way on how to use it there but I'll be sure to post my question there as well.

I did find this; it might be outdated though but I hope it gives me some general idea on its use:

• View topic - add new shapes to path macro

Hi Stephanie,

I've played with it a bit. Do you have any specific questions about it?

Too bad you could't get help from the forums, I only have the very first version that came out many, many years ago before all these cool rhinestone softwares hit the market, so I can't recall how to use it. Haven't touched it in a long time, I don't even think it is installed on my computer anymore.
Sorry I could not be more helpful.

For $20, it's not too bad...Especially for someone getting into rhinestone patterns. It's really basic, but can do fills and outlines.

Then it might be worth it for you to check out the macro for only $20 if you're okay with maybe having to buy other software later.

You can check it out here...

I've been messing around with it, and have been getting a gist of the utility.
Few questions here though.

Do I need to set outline for every graphic for this to work?

What is the Auto-matching for?

How would I do multi-color? I've tried replacing the colors of existing led's without success?

Do I need to go in the LED settings to set size of stones?

I'll start with this one since it's quick and easy..

-Go to the last button on the right and choose "LED Settings"
-Type in the diameter of the stone you want to cut. In the Wattage, I put the SS value such as 6, 10, etc. (No letters so you can't put in SS10, just 10).
-Click "Add the new item". A pop up window will launch asking you to add the new item, Click Yes.
-The new size won't show up until you close the LED macro and relaunch it...(At least that's the only way I can see it.)

So, go ahead and remove and re-populate the LED values with the correct rhinestone sizes to get started.
