Q: Whenever my cutter is cutting, if I navigate to another program on my Mac, the cutting slows down to almost nothing. As soon as I make EasyCut the focus again, it resumes cutting normally. I can’t figure out what might be causing this.

A: You can try to go to the Finder, do a get info on the application and check the Prevent App Nap option and see if that helps.

Q: When I cut it always leave 30 cm in the beginning? This will waste a lot of vinyl. how I fix this?

A: When you hit cut to bring up the cut window, there is a Cut mode settings. If set to WYSIWYG, it will cut wherever you place it on the screen relative to the origin point. If set to Origin Point, it will shift the design and start cutting wherever the origin is set on the cutter.

A: For Graphtec machines, the step size set in the software cut window must match whatever is set on the Graphtec machine.

Q: when I trace a Jpeg image, edges do not cut smooth. Any idea why?

A: When you hit cut to bring up the cut window, try to change the Holder setting to Pen and set the option below to "Draw draw+cut lines".
