Inspiration / InVue users: This Quick Start Guide is included with the purchase of a Vue. Although much of the guide will apply to your Inspiration with the InVue software, there are features within the InVue software that will work only with the Vue, specifically print and cut using the method in the quick start guide. Make sure when you go to cut the print and cut option in the cut panel is unchecked. This feature is only for the Vue and use of the optical eye. Using it with the inspiration can cause cutting and communication issues. You can find the print and cut button in the Cut Panel just above the Send button. You will want to make sure the Print and Cut button is UNchecked.
Please note, the Inspiration is older, designed for older technology. To get a newer computer to talk to the Inspiration, additional steps may be required. If you have issues sending the first cut from the InVue software to the Inspiration, specifically that the Inspiration is not connected or nothing happens, you will want to follow the steps Inspiration Not Detected or check to confirm virus protection is not blocking the FTDI drivers.
