Cutting Roll Paper

The printer has a built-in cutter that can automatically cut most paper types. When Auto Cut is turned on, paper is automatically cut after each page prints, or if the roll paper leading edge is not straight.

Use of the built-in cutter is not recommended for commercially available canvas or synthetic paper, as it may dull the blade and require more frequent blade replacement. When you print on this paper type, disable the Auto Cut setting and cut the print off the roll manually.

To switch between automatic or manual cutting methods, adjust the Auto Cut settings in the printer driver. The setting selected in the printer driver overrides the control panel setting.
