An other Subject Post Script I have saved several drawings into post Script but what do I do with them ? I have not found tutorials
on this subject? I would like to cut them on my CNC.

First Q:
Ellipse and circle are shape objects. Convert to path objects to node-edit.
See tutorials in Menu: Help>tutorials, and http://tavmjong.free.fr/INKSCAPE/MANUAL/html/Shapes.html.

Second Q:
When I have drawings to use for CNC, I import SVG or DXF into CAM program of choice. I use Inkscape or online file converters to get the DXF.
