When generating our surfaces, we have never had to draw cuts. We simply modify the volume segmentation until no handles are found by the automated Find Handles' option or no topological errors are found after the surface reconstruction using SureFit. Typically the handles we get are caused by fused sulci that need to be opened.
Perhaps you can send a snapshot of the inflated surface showing the issue.

Hi Bonnie, With the cutting handles stuff, you are treading into territory I fear, so can't help you there. But with the term-12 atlas, I think you can just browse this paper: Hill, J., Dierker, D., Neil, J., Inder, T., Knutsen, A., Harwell, J., Coalson, T. and Van Essen, D. (2009) A surface-based analysis of hemispheric asymmetries and folding of cerebral cortex in term-born human infants. J. Neuroscience http://www.jneurosci.org/cgi/reprint/30/6/2268 ... and then see which figure shows files you might want, and select a dataset here: http://sumsdb.wustl.edu:8081/sums/directory.do?id=7052056&dir_name=HILL_JNEUROSCIENCE_2010 Click the diskette shaped icon next to a particular dataset to download the zip file containing the spec file and its contents. Also search pubmed.org for Christopher Smyser and check out his papers. He probably has some more current versions of the same atlas. He and the folks who work for him are very helpful and knowledgeable.
