1. In the “Material Manager” tab, next to the “Methods” click the “New” button


2. Name the Method and select a custom color that is not already being used by a method. You

can use this color as a spot color for this method when you create a file.


3. After saving the new Method it should appear in the “Methods” drop-down like so:


4. Now in the “Materials” section select the material that you wish to use the new method on.

Then click “Edit”


5. Under the “Methods” section of the pop-up settings window click the green plus


6. Click the drop-down of the new added method and select the new method that you created.


7. Now select the new method by clicking the slashed area on the left of it. Press the wrench at the

bottom of the “Tools” section


8. Select the tool or tools that you wish to use for this method


9. Select the tool that you just added and click the settings cog


10. (ONLY IN SGP v2) Change the settings for the tool as needed (For example if you are doing back slits on stickers

select “Cut from backside”)
