    I just cut 200 small decals about 4"x8" and every single one the lower case letter "L" only cut about half way and then nothing. Everything else perfect. Whatever. Just cut out 200 lowercase "L"s and place them where they need to go. Right. Nope. Cut them and same thing. changed the font to a rounded letter and still only cuts half way around. Its fricken weird.

    I think it is mad at me. It has been running pretty much all afternoon on smaller items.

    The "l" is about 1/2" tall and I even scaled it up to about 2 inches and still the same thing. Computer is shutting down and the plotter is off. Hopefully after restarting it will go back to normal.

    Lowercase Ls aren't too hard-just cut a looong thin strip, and then place one end of it in the right place & cut the bottom end off, place that, and cut, place that, and cut, etc etc.

    It's when they play up doing Rs, Bs or 8s that it's a pain!

    Maybe make it an upper case "I", depending on the font.

    After restarting my computer and plotter it was working fine. Weird as hell though. I couldnt use an uppercase "I" for this font. Im just glad it is working right now.
