When I do the data merge in Indesign with Text and square shape, there are gaps between the square shape, it's not joining for the laser cuts. It looks fine in normal view, but in the "outline" view we can see the gaps. How can I remove the gaps between shapes?
Horizontal and vertical lines across the width and height of the page (you can use Step and Repeat to space them between your "squares" give you strokes on all four sides, it's just that they are long lines, not closed squares. Hard for me to believe there waould be a functional difference in the cutting.
