Tiling a graphic for a cut across the width of your media?

    When I try and cut multiple copies of a single graphic in Flexi (Pro 8.1) it puts the copies in a row down the length of the media. This wastes a lot of vinyl. Is there a way to get it to tile the copies across the width instead? I swear I have done this before, but at the time the hardware was different, so I was also wondering if it's a limitation of my little Roland GX24?

    when in doubt, set up multiples yourself (copy/paste/move)

    That's what I am doing now, but it becomes a waste of time when trying to cut dozens or hundreds of the same thing.

    I've not seen that problem if there is sufficient width on the material. Have you tried rotating the design in production manager?

    Plenty of room, a 3" graphic and 24" wide media. Rotating doesn't do a thing.

    just set up the width multiples ... you can do the length repeats in the prod. mgr.

    to answer your question, I have that happen to me sometimes, and i just fiddle with center/left/right justification and the panel margins, and it usually corrects it

    This fixes it in 8.6 as well. I always double check a file if I am running it a second or 3rd time. The copies can suddenly change into a long string of singles down the material without doing anything other than opening the Production Manager.

    If this does not fix it post up a screen grab of your Production manager window with the problem showing.
