I created a rectangular outline around a design in CorelDraw X6 and assigned it a Roland color corresponding to a cut line (upper screen shot). When I opened the file in VersaWorks, only two sides of the cutline were present.  To make viewing the outline easier, I only exported the cut line into VersaWorks (in the attachment, the lower screen shot). In this screen shot, there is a dotted line (red marching ants) along the top and left of the screen but not a complete rectangle. When I processed the file, it printed nicely but only two sides of the rectangle were cut.

I created the rectangular outline two different ways and got the same result; 1) I created a boundary around the rectangular design and 2) I created a rectangle and fitted it around the design.

I'm sure there is an obvious explanation for this; but, it is not obvious to me. Thoughts?

Could you please post the original file?

Sorry, should have done that with the original post.


If you saved the file as an eps, make sure you have a small margin setup in file format in settings. This should be done to set as a default. Mine is set at .01.

what is your eps margin set at?

Was the file in VW - eps or pdf -

Remember the eps bump works on eps files not pdf

The obvious explanation was that the eps setting was 0.0 for the queue that I was using. Changed the setting to 0.1 and it fixed the issue. I seem to recall that there was another post recently dealing with this but I must not have been paying careful attention. Thank you gentlemen, you made my day.

I am having this same problem. How do I fix this in corel?



You fix it in Roland VersaWorks. In VersaWorks, click on EDIT, pick QUEUE A Settings (if you are using QUEUE A), click on File Format and you should see a box that has EPS settings. If it is 0.0, change it to 0.25.

It is most likely a margin problem.  As others have said if you used an eps file set the margin in VW.  However, I have found when setting up a file as a pdf to be sent to VW I need to set the "Page size" in Corel to just slightly larger than the graphics.  When I set my "Page size" in Corel to the exact size of my graphics I have had this same problem with cut lines.

Interesting. I learned something new today.

That was a frustrating process figuring that one out.

I believe it.
