    So I just printed 30 - 18" x 24" signs - and now I realized I used Mimaki Type 1 crop marks :Oops: instead of type 2 which is what I always use, and now my cutter won't find them

    -anybody know any settings I can change to get the cutter to cut them? Thanks in advance

    tell us what kind of cutter you have first. If its any of the CG series, yes you can cut both but you need to go through the setup controls on your plotter and set it for the appropriate crop mark type.

    Ok - I have the Mimaki CG-160FX - printed from the JV3-160SP (if that makes a difference)

    Thanks

    or just go to Function > Setup > Mark Detect and scroll through till you find the right cut marks.

    thank you to everyone - George I went with the easy way you suggested - I feel like an idiot not knowing my machine but the first step is admitting that, right? Thanks again:thankyou:
