    We carry a 24" vinyl utter in or race trailer to use while at the track. Last year out laptop died and had an old LXI program on it. We cannot find the disc so we can't load it on the new computer. I have corel draw and was thinking i could use co-cut or other program to cut. The plotter is a cheap lynx plotter from Sign warehouse so if we brake it while traveling we're not out a lot of money

    Have you tried cutting directly from Corel? Treat the plotter like a "printer" and just do File>Print>Select Cutter (in place of Printer)>"Print"

    I know I can do that with the Roland (in Ai, DRAW X5 and in Inkscape as well).

    You need to have the plotter set to HPGL and it will work.
