Most Mimaki plotters must be set to Lower Right Orientation. Please refer to your Plotter's Manual for how to do this.
In CorelDraw's Layout menu select
Page Setup. A dialog box will appear. Set Width to 3200mm
(125.984 inches) and Height to 585mm (23.03 inches).
Ensure that you are using a Landscape page.
To set this as a default page in CorelDRAW 7 click on the Tools menu and choose Setting for New Documents. Make sure all of the options are ticked and click on the Save Settings Now button.
To set this as a default page in CorelDRAW 8, 9, 10 or 11 click on the Tools menu and choose Options. Click on the word Document on the left hand side and ensure all of the options are ticked and click on the OK button.
To cut any object in CorelDraw, simply place on the page in the bottom left corner. If you wish to cut in a portrait fashion simply rotate your graphics.
SignTools 3 cuts from the bottom left of the page either manually place object(s) in the botton left of the CorelDRAW page or use the "Vinyl Saver" tool with the sliding bar all the way to the left.
