    I am using Flexi Sign Pro and a JSI P 24 cutter.

    Every time I send an image to the cutter, the vinyl seems to advance out about 4-5 inches first. Is there any settings I am missing to stop this?

    In production manager I closed in the panel real tight on the items to be cut but it is still advancing.

    See if you don't have some value other than 0 in the vertical position field on the General tab in the Cut/Plot dialog. That would be the dialog that you appear to have confused with the Production Manager.

    The Cut/Plot dialog is what appears when invoke the Cut/Plot command from Flexi's main window. The Production Manager is a separate process that actually drives your plotter. Many people confuse the two but knowing the proper nomenclature is at lease half of all wisdom.

    If all is correct in th Flexi then it sure sounds like it's the plotter. You might want to take a tour through the plotter's settings and see just what is what. I've never seen your flavor of plotter but most every one has settings for this and that. Some of the settings can be pretty obscure and still have all sorts of interesting effects.
