Function notes:

Cut After: After printing, the media is transported back to the zero point and then Cut without using marks.

Using Marks: Images are printed with marks. The medium can be removed from the printer, e.g. for lamination, and then reinserted. The Contour Cut is then executed using the marks.

Cut Only: A cutting job can be processed (without printing).
