Default GCC Expert ii LX 24 Cutter settings

Hello,
Just got my cutter setup and using for the first time. I am using the Sign Master software with Siser EasyWeed vinyl. My problem is everything is working and it is cutting the vinyl but when I go to weed it, it is not cut deep enough and everything peels off. I have tried everything I can think of. Settings:
Blade 45 degrees
Force 90
Offset .30
Speed 30
I have reset the blade. Not sure what else to do. Any suggestions would be appreciated.
I did the cut test on the cutter and it cuts the square perfect and I can weed it. So it must be the software settings.

We find that everything you want to cut must be set as an hairline outline otherwise it wont cut.

Not sure if this is why the cut test is fine but the job wont cut

Where is that setting. I can't seem to find it.

We work from Corel Draw, set everything you want to cut as outline, and not a solid object. In Corel if you select what you want to cut, press F12 this will bring up an outline properties tab.

Select any colour for the outline, and set the width to hairline.

If working from Illustrator, I think you need to set the stroke weight to the lowest it can be which I think from memory is 0.25.

I hope this helps. I know from using Roland cutters it would cut solids and outlines, but from using the Jaguar recently, noticed that it would only cut if the object was set as an outline. I wasted a few metres of vinyl to learn this
