SCAL 2 is definitely much easier for flipping the text for making iron ons. A few posts ago, I gave directions for settingup text for iron on vinyl. (These apply if you have to use SCAL original or DS) These directions and pictures apply to SCAL 2 only. My goodness it is soooo easy, one click. Simply type your text normally (pic one) and then click the flip horizontal button (pic two) and you're done!!
