Sammy, I am a total beginner. I have already learned from your first step in the tutorial. But I get stuck at step 3 "add a square or rectangle". Just how do I do that???? sorry.

Sammy, Great layouts! Question: when putting a shape, say from Animal Kingdom, in an aperture card, can it only cut the shadow? It would be great if you could get the outlines and all. I just did an elephant and got the shadow and eyes, but no ears, tusks or anything.
