I am trying to get SignLab 9 to advance my media after cut is finished on my TITAN 3. I have set it in to advance 6 inches in SignLab under Cut > Plotting Defaults > Setup > Additional X move at end. Origin Bottom Left is selected and End Point Bottom Right is selected. Is there something else I need to do to get this to work?

I think I may know why again.

1:
Go to Cut/Plotting Defualts.
Press the Setup button.
Once in Plotter Setup, press the ALT key and the 'e' key at the same time.
NotePad should appear with you driver in it.

Look for
[Generic]
;AbsMove=A
;RelMove=R
MoveUp=PU%.0lf,%.0lf;
MoveDn=PD%.0lf,%.0lf;
Tile=PU0,%.0lf;IN;
Change the line in Red to be
Tile=PU%.0lf,0;PD;PU;IN;

Might have to change it to
Tile=PU%.0lf,0;PR;PD1,0;PU;PA;IN;

I think the plotter is not advancing the extra distance because it doesn't see any pen down command.

Nope. Tried both. Tried the first one and same thing happened. Tried the second one and it did the same thing but also added an extra cut line across the top also going over the registration marks.
