If the printing position and the cutting position are offset as shown in the figure below, you can correct the issue by adjusting either the printing position or the cutting position. This example shows the procedure for adjusting the printing position.
The Crop Mark Adjustment dialog box appears.
Adjust the Base X and Base Y values to eliminate the offset, and then click OK.
Do not change the W and L values at this point.
Change the Base X value. If the cutting position is offset to the right, increase the value; if it is offset to the left, decrease the value. In the case shown in the figure above, increase Base X.
Change the Base Y value. If the cutting position is offset above, increase the value; if it is offset below, decrease the value. In the case shown in the figure above, increase Base Y.
If the printing and cutting positions are offset at a location distant from the origin as shown in the figure below even after adjusting the positions with Base X and Base Y values, it is possible that the distance between the crop marks that are printed is offset from the settings (W and L). This may be due to the expansion or contraction of the material or distortion in the printing. Proceed to step 4.
However, the values are merely guide lines. The optimal values must be found by changing the values and actually cutting the material several times.
Before changing the settings, check that the Base X and Base Y settings have been adjusted with respect to a line or point close to the origin. If they were not, the adjustment result of step 3 will be offset if the W and L settings are changed.
This may be because the distance between the printed crop marks is longer than the setting. In this case, set the W and L values greater than the settings to make the adjustment.
This may be because the distance between the printed crop marks is shorter than the setting. In this case, set the W and L values smaller than the settings to make the adjustment.
The values entered in the Crop Mark Adjustment dialog box are effective only when Fine adjustment in the Printing Setup dialog box is enabled. All the entered values are cleared if Fine adjustment is disabled or if the W and L values of Crop marks are changed.
If the sensor fails to read the crop marks
If the sensor fails to read the crop marks, the screen in the figure appears. If this screen appears, proceed to "Crop Marks Cannot be Read." If this does not resolve the issue, refer to "Using Tool Mode (1)," and perform alignment in Tool Mode.
