Split objects to create cut path

So I created several boxes with text in each box. After I was done I obviously had just one cut. I am trying to etch (fill) the text and cut (line) the box shape. If I select all of the boxes and not the text can I somehow create an additional cut for just the boxes?Example file

Select box shapes
Select new color (same for all box)
LB will create new layer for this new color elements
Select cut/draw mode for this layer


As mentioned in your previous post, you should take a look at these links as they cover the basic operations of LightBurn, the workspace, how to set Layers and adjust for different cut styles (Line, Fill and Fill & Line) along with FAQ’s and other useful ‘How To’ tips and tricks can be found using the search function of this forum.


Just as an fyi, I had watched most of the that Lightburn has put out. And I have watched many 3rd party videos. My problem was that the color swatch bar was hidden and I had to make the window smaller to see it.
