Do you have a sample to share? I can make a sketch and choose etch just fine in ordered.

Maybe the contour flange is the issue, I'm not sure. I went to your unbend and tried, no worky for me either.

You are very close to the solution. ;-)

You drew the sketch in the flat pattern. If you create the etch there it works. You only need to select "single" in staid of "chain":

After this you can select your sketch and the etch is made.

 

I don't upload the file because I work with ST8, so you can't open it.
