    I have designed in CorelDraw and printed/cut through Versaworks on multiple Rolands for 10 years.

    I started at a new shop this week. They have an HP latex 365 and a graphtec cutter. They have never had an in house designer, and have gotten Corel set up for me. They have always set up prints in Flexi and print/cut with production manager.

    I can send .pdf files from Corel straight to PM and it prints fine. However, I can't figure out how to create a functional cutline in corel for use with production manager. I tried sending files to Flexi and having my coworker add the cutlines how she always has. This severely brings down print quality, and my Corel created cutlines are useless. Can't seem to find any information on the subject. Any help is appreciated.

    You need to create a spot color named CutContour, it can be any color you want, as long as it's named CutContour. Then when you make your cut path, assign it that color.

    Oh ok, this is how it works for versaworks. I can do the same for use in production manager and it will see the cut contour?
