    my print and cut combination not working in raster link the cut/color is linked together but the color(print) bracket is empty no graphic displayed and raster link can't or doesn't read so it doesn't print it prints fine when not attached to cut. Please help. I'm willing to pay for remote assistance.

    Remove the installed raster link software and reinstall it.


    Have you not installed SignLab for VersaWork on your PC?

    Set everything up in Illy and use the FineCut plugin to do your cutting. Can't get any simpler and doesn't cost you a dime. We use this method with CorelDRAW.

    Duh... you mean Illustrator... ? I have been doing it that way but when it links over to the actual rasterlink. the Picture/print icon is blank thus no reading of what needs printing which brings us back to my original dillema...

    Check each layer's settings and make sure the print layer isn't set to not print. It sounds obvious but it's one of those settings that isn't readily apparent and can be clicked and you don't even know it! Also, try creating a spot color called, "CutContour" and set your cut data to that color. Then just save as an EPS or PDF and open in Rasterlink without using FineCut. See if that works better for you.

    Thanks for all the replies.. Vander J , I definitely have the print set to print and am trying to figure out how to change the spot color and change to PDF .. yet the cutting at this time is not the issue.. I have attached a pic of what i am seeing.. Where it says color {connected to cut} is blank... i have never been able to transfer over and image to print w/ print and cut.. but it does transfer over w/ only Print...

    Send a screenshot of your FineCut settings when you send the files through. It looks like something is not right because in the screenshot you took the print layer is actually being seen as another cut layer. Notice after the MPC_ it says CU on both layers but on your print only one it says PR? On the print cut job 1 should be CU and the other PR. You might need to go empty out the hot folder if there are any files in there.
