    Ok. Here's the Deal. We have a Mutoh Junior Wide Format Printer and a 50 inch Panther plotter. We are trading in the panther for a graphtec for its ease of contour cutting. The software that sign warehouse gave us to use is Flexi-Pro 7.5. We did not want or ask for a complete sign making program. We have used corel programs for 15 years. Before we upgraded to the mutoh we were using a roland pc-600 and printing/cutting directly from coreldraw 9.

    My Point is,
    1. Are there any plug-ins out there that can cut and print directly from corel? (like cocut but printing also)
    2. Are there any programs that do not require a dongle? (they suck over a network)
    3. Which programs do you recommend and why?

    The main thing is, if you are a corel or adobe user you pretty much know that flexi sucks and any alternatives would be much appreciated!!!

    Onyx or Wasatch are two I can think of, and I believe that both of them have a contour cutting feature as well.

    We currently use the dreaded Flexi, its all in opinion on what you like to use. I have used Onyx in the past with our old Colorspan with good results, and we are looking at switching over our print workflow to Onyx rather than Flexi anyways.

    Hey Techman, seems like the Pjannto RIP used to come with CoCut Pro, but the later updates don't seem to include it. I never used it but remember it being part of the install. Any ideas?
