    When you say any edge, does this mean the keyboard/opposite as well, or just the length?

    Never mind... read it better this time

    I always make my Designer boards as small as possible around my carvings and cutouts. Since trying to have the Designer board match the real board just leads to problems, I see no point in having extra surrounding virtual board. Since, as Dick says, pattern size = Designer board size, making the Designer board as small as possible gives one the most freedom in placing the project on the real board. Even if you like to place on end, just answer yes to say under the rollers and your project will be placed 3.5" from the end.

    See Determine Project Size on Page 21

    If you add the 7" to your board, we suggest say NO to STAY UNDER ROLLERS. Otherwise, it will shrink your project 3.5" from the end.

    I use sleds with 4" end pieces for virtually everything. Most of the time I say yes to stay under rollers, using both center on board and jog to corner depending on the project. It has never resized my project, not once.

    Well I hope we are not confusing Rick to much on his question. He called me yesterday to see if I know how to use the jog to position so he could place the pattern at the location the customer wanted. Since I do not use this function, lack of understanding for the most part and not able to find documentation on the feature, I pointed him to the forum as I thought there were several who do use it.

    I told him if all else fails to to set up his design board as the pocket in his sled. (he is using a sled) Then draw a rectangle to show the placement of the board in the sled and after measuring the location for the pattern on the real board, place the pattern on the design board at that location. Then he could do the normal set up as, no to stay under rollers and place on center.....

    Maybe Rick can reply with an update on the situation. It may be (from reading his original post) that he was doing it right but just thought something was wrong.

    Any chance he is doing it right and the movement is the machine moving to the edge of the pattern? Try a single drill hole?

    I was thinking he jogged to the front corner and then saw it start carving in a different place because the front corner is really the front corner of the Designer board whereas the machine started carving where the actual pattern is on the Designer board.
