Eject Cut:When the Cut key is pressed on the printer control panel, the roll paper is cut by
the cutter unit. Select this if you do not want the printed material to drop immediately after
printing, such as to wait for the ink to dry.
User Cut:Cutting is not performed by the cutter unit. Cut the roll paper using scissors after
each sheet. Select this for paper that cannot be cut by the cutter unit.
Specify the time that the printer waits for ink to dry, as needed.
Off:Ejects immediately after printing finishes.

Permit: Borderless printing is permitted.
Deny: Borderless printing is denied.
Depending on the paper, there are types that cannot be cut by the cutter unit, and types that speed deterioration of
the blade and cause damage to the cutter. For thick paper, hard paper, etc. do not use the cutter unit, and instead
cut the roll paper using scissors, etc. after printing. In this case, select User Cut as the Automatic Cutting Set-
If borderless printing is performed on paper where the ink drying is poor, the cutter unit may leave scratches where
it touches the printed surface, or may not cut correctly. In this kind of situation, configure the amount of time to wait
for the ink to dry after printing using Drying Time. Alternatively, if the paper cannot be cut well by the cutter, set the
Automatic Cutting Settings to User Cut and cut the roll paper using scissors, etc.
Paper where borderless printing can be performed is limited by the media type and roll paper width. Refer to
For custom paper where there is a need to set the Automatic Cutting Settings to User Cut, set the Borderless
Printing to Deny.
If a standard paper that does not display the Name in Printer Driver is selected in the screen in Step 5, you cannot
perform test prints or configure the maximum amount of ink to use.
