Help BASIC lesson inkscape to scal 04

Designing in inkscape so you know what size
it is going to cut in scal .Here is a lesson on how this is done.
Opening inkscape you get a page size as default

First thing to do is go FILE , Document Properties

It will put up a box. in Custom size where it has px change this to in (inches)
Now change the width to 11.4 and height to 5.4
(this is if you want to place at 5.4 in scal)

Then push enter and close that folder

Now if you work in that boarder
in this case i picked wording but i do all my
designs this way specally word books
Save as .svg

Open SCAL and set default size as 5.4

Then file import

And pick the files you have just made

It will import and be the size that you designed it
and ready to cut

Hope this is help to someone
