View Full Version : Exporting Cutting Data

We recently purchased new cutters that will accept the ppf files we export from Preps for the cutting data.

We have an odd work flow in which we output one plate for the upper and lower and then cut and punch after imaging. Our plate setter will not handle a single plate, it's too small. We can also output these plates very fast.

They tweaked the software for the cutters to recognize 1/2 of the plate information but the cutter believes that all sheets are 20 3/8 (half plate) by 23 (press cutoff).

Is there any way to have a press sheet size for just part of the layout to export the data other than have the job imposed twice, one for the plate and second for the paper size?

Thank you,

Anyone have any ideas on this?
