There are 3 options after you scan to cut data. You want the second, or middle one. That should help!

I am using a special "scanning mat," not a regular mat. You can purchase one from any Brother dealer. It's called a scanning mat. It's not sticky and the clear film holds what you're scanning in place. Also, please don't use a glue stick on your mat. Use a baby wipe to clean it and that should bring some of the stickiness back. Hope that helps!
