    Is Vista my problem?

    Some other things to check 1. Start with your offset something as simple as that would be a nice fix. 2. Check your speed, believe it or not, your cutter can cut TOO fast and when it is, these little openings are a tell-tale sign. 3. If it doesn't happen all the time, check the fonts you're...

    Corel & CoCut
