Need Help Panel jobs get double cut on the edge line

    So when I'm cutting a large decal (single color die-cut style) into smaller sections I adjust the panel size to a size that will fit my material and cut each panel as separate jobs. But in doing so the straight line it makes seems to get cut twice on the first panel I make. Then I think it gets cut 3 times on the second panel since that straight line always cuts completely through the paper on the second job. Any settings I can change to fix this other than going back and manually cutting into sections? I think "easy weed" causes one of the extra cuts but still doesn't explain where this third one is coming from on the second panel.

    Is this on print and cut jobs where you have created the cut layers with a new color?

    Single color cut job. No printing involved.

    i think you're looking to uncheck the "Cut Tile Lines" box in your tiling menu?
    You may be having issue with your tiles having zero spacing, and when it goes to cut the tile lines for each, they are overlapping and cutting multiple times.

    I'll be sure to try it next time I have a big job. Thanks!

    Where is this setting? I don't see it anywhere in PM. I did discover if I turn off "easy weed" it fixes the issue since for some reason the easy weed box decides to cut directly over that panel line on one side instead of having the 0.1" spacing I have specified.
