It comes with x3 and microsoft everything. I have cut them out of 1/8 plywood also for flat serfices, works well. I clear laquar them first for easy clean up.

You can make your own stencil font , cos the stencil font that comes with corel is often not suitable
Use the text style you want , then Use rectangles to make bridges where you need em , select all the text and the rectangles and go to arrange/shaping...click on trim and then just delete the rectangles , hey presto , your own stencil font....
Only fly in the oinkment is that you cant edit after you have done this , the trim automatically converts the text to curves.
