I am trying to cut a design that is about 16 inches. When I try to cut, I get this message "Characters won't fit! Change size or Press Cut again to cut as many as will fit." I have tried using the 12 x 24 paper as well as 12 x 12. I changed my mat setting on my Cricut and I still get this message. What am I doing wrong?

I think for the 12x24 you have to change mat size then did you choose the fit to length for your 10 inch or fit to page?

That would be so awesome if I helped you out my first time answering a cry for help LOL

Juicyfruities,
Thank you for your help. I did cut to length and it cut at 11". However, when I tried cut to page, I got the same error message. I am trying to cut a 16" Texas out of vinyl for my daughter's shower liner. Since it says that you can cut up to 24" I thought 16" would be no problem. However, I will have to keep trying. I do appreciate your help. This mb is the best!

Did you try changing the way you cut your letters from landscape to portrait? See if that helps. I was trying to do that myself and got angry because it wasn't doing what I wanted it to doAngry . I put my machine away and just as soon as I was all cleaned up the thought hit meHuh Cursing change the direction of the cutting and It should fit. I havent tried it because I have been so busy with work.
Hope that helps!

Gina,
I did try the landscape, but it would not cut out the larger sizes. I am using the 12x24 mat and have changed my setting, but don't know what else to do. Anyway, I thank you for your help. I will keep trying!Confused

Played with the size in CDS. The problem is that to make the image of Texas cut proportionately, when the height is 16" the width is over 16". Even if you rotate the image 90 degrees, the width is 16" and the height is over 16". One of the measurements must be under 12" to fit on the mat. Looks like the largest size that can be cut is 11-1/2". Hope this helps.

Jennifer,
Thanks so much for your help! I guess I had better get to playing with my CE so that next time I won't feel so foolish. I don't know what I would do without this mb.
Thanks again!

Well darn. Sorry to hear that but Good Luck. I am looking forward to cutting 12x24 but can't find any paper.

You can find 12x24 paper packs at Hobby Lobby. I think they are $14.99. Hope this helps.BigGrin

i have tried to cut many items at larger sizes-have spent hours trying!!! no matter what i did or tried to cut, i was lucky if i could get a cut at 11 inches. finally called pc and a gal was on with me for quite awhile, and we too tried everything and nothing. when pc advertised those 23in cuts, i think they lied!!! anita
