Brother Scan N Cut Canvas Updates

May 12, 2017 — 19 Comments

Howdy my scanny chums. As there has been a couple of minor updates and changes to Scan N Cut Canvas recently I thought that I would pop a quick video up explaining them.

First, Mozilla Firefox users can now access the Scan N Cut Canvas software online. There are however limitations but some access is better than none.

The second update gives us the ability to import the image that is being traced onto the virtual mat so that we can work directly over it – handy if you want to refine the tracing after you have done the auto-trace. For more on this and what you will see, please have a gander at the video below.

By the way, don’t forget that this is just the online software. No update is required for your machine or computer.

Many thanks for stopping by. I’ll be back soon with more of these.

Bye for now.

J :)

    I was using the online software in Firefox since the beginning of the machine, meaning years ago.

    I must be missing something. I’m not sure what ‘tracing’ is all about, is this different to scanning?



    Thanks, John. It just gets better and better. Off to play now.

    Hi John – I have an older CM600 machine so I assume that this feature is only available on the wifi models.
