    Hello I have Corel 2017 and am trying to cut letters. It is just one word but it cuts like the middle letter first then the outside letter then the other side letter then the letters in between and it takes so long. It used to cut them in a line one after the other. I have over a hundred to cut and would like to figure out why it's doing it.
    Thank you for any help,,paul

    I don't cut from Corel, but I do see this happen when the text isn't text anymore. The software is seeing the separate shapes and cutting out of order.

    I use Gerber software and I have an option to Sequential Plot which makes it cut from left to right no matter what the shapes are.

    In corel, with cutting master for a graphtec, you want to make certain 'speed priority' is selected for cut order, as opposed to 'restrict media movement' or 'none'. If you layer them yourself, you can select 'none' and it will cut the objects in the order that they are layered on the page.

    it always seemed to me that it always cuts "stupidly" for want of a technical term

    your problem is speed, because who really cares what order it cuts in (other than limiting how much shuffling of the roll is involved)

    This is very simple. The digital graphic files (vector) has a sandwich structure and the cutter takes the layers of this sandwich one by one.
    (Don't need to separate all symbols in different work layers.)
    You should distribute symbols in your file in the order you want to cut it. Use "order" menu to do it.
    For example, you need to cut the word: "Rock" in backward starts from "k" to "R".
    So on top, you will place the letter "k" lower will go letter "c" lower "o" and in back "R".
