Hi! I created a project a few weeks ago...today I want to work on it and finally cut. My questions is...how can I tell which cartridge I used for it?

I can see the size, etc. when I click on the "Shape Properties" tab on the left, but it doesn't tell the font (cartridge). I can pull up the tabs from the bottom, but they highlight the first cartridge I have in the list. I want to work with that same original font (cartridge) but can't figure out which one.

Thanks for any help.

Click on the image once. Then right-click on it. A window pops up. The cartridge you used is at the top of the list.

WOW! I didn't know that! What good info!

I used a cartridge and wanted to make more layouts for the series with the same font and couldn't figure out what I used. I went into the one that I saved and erased it and put my new words in it. I've done that 7 or 8 times. Now I can go see what the cartridge was!

I didn't know that either! It's very frustrating to go back to a project and discover that I've left out a letter or want to add something else and have to look through a zillion cartridges to find out what I've used. Thanks so much for sharing this wonderful tidbit!

Yep, that's why when I am done cutting an image I pull it off the mat to the side, then when I'm done with everything I do the right click on each image and write down the cart so I can include it in my info for the Cricut challenge.
I don't delete any image till I'm completely done with a LO.

I wonder how many more little tidbits we all know and think that everyone knows.... But really we don't??!!!

Glad to know I wasn't the only one...I 'felt' like there had to be a way to see the cartridge and figured it was right under my nose as usual...so I really, really appreciated the help and ended up finishing 6 layouts. Love sb.com friends! Scrapjanny, you made my day!

Trish/ChansGran, I wonder if we should start one of those Cricut Craft Room 101 boards on the Cricut board. I know I used the Cricut 101 information a TON when I first started this obsession.

Oh, that's so nice of you to say. I'm very glad that I was able to help.

I would love to see a Cricut Craft Room 101 board separate from the other Cricut board. That would be awesome!
