If you are using a 12 inch by 24 inch cutting mat then the largest you can cut is 11.5 inches by 23.5 inches. If you are wanting to cut larger than these options then you simply must cut your design. The easiest way to do that is to make a square or rectangle in Design Space that is the size of the cutting area.
