    Help with cutting problems

    I am having trouble with my cameo stopping before it has cut all of a design. I have updated the software and reduced the packing size to 500 as these seemed to be suggestions I found on the silhouette site. My machine only seems to cope with simple cut jobs. I have the original cameo so wondering if the machine has reached the end of its use and I will need to upgrade to a new machine!! Does anyone have any suggestions on anything else to try?

    Thank you for the link. Tried this out and also attached the machine directly into the PC and not through the USB hub I had previously used. It seems to be cutting ok now.

    Neries they are aware that this is an issue but you can get round it by moving the bleed radius up to the maximum.

    Thanks Shirley. Will it show the bleed on the on the print preview? It always use to show as soon as I put a tick in the box on my screen before going to cut.

    Yes it does for me but I may be on a different version of the software - 4.4.907

    Shirley that would explain why it did not work for me as I am on 4.4.895. I did not know there had been an update since I last downloaded that one on the 26th October. I have cut out what I wanted but had to touch up with a black marker.

    Sorry Neries been busy trying to reschedule a holiday. The print bleed only seems to show in print preview and the bleed isn't very much. Will try and get an update for you.

    Thanks Shirley.

    I will try again. I don't mind if not very much print bleed as I always reduced the amount from 50 to 20. Just enough to cover the slight amount of white. No amount of calibration I do seems to make it perfect. The markers not easy to move just slightly with my mouse. Could be I need a better mouse than the one which came with my p.c.

    Thanks Shirley, I hope it is soon.

    I tried it again and the print preview showed a small amount of print bleed, but I did not see it after printing.

    I am struggling to edit the points to get really close to the edge of the printing by zooming in but the points do not get any larger only the image. First image zoomed in, second normal size. I have a 22in computer screen and wear varifocal glasses.
