The Cut After quantity setting must be configured in the Printing Preferences and should be set to a value equal to or **larger than the application needs. This applies to printing multiple across labels as well. 

**Note: If you set the value higher you can avoid the annoyance of changing the Cutter Group Quantity in Properties for different print jobs.
