Since latest update from Illustrator (version 26.3) the software will give an error and the Summa plugins will no longer work. You will get an error message which states what plugin is creating the issue:

(SummaCC2018.aip could be also SuGoSignAiCC2018Plugin.aip or SuGoProduce.. or any other Summa plugin installed in Illustrator)


How to check the Illustrator version:




Solution 1 - Roll Cutter - GoSign users - NEW GoSign plugin available


Summa made a new plugin that supports latest Illustrator version:




Solution 2 - Roll Cutter - WinPlot users - Update your system to GoSign 


Contact your supplier and check if you can update to GoSign software. GoSign software does also have a free version with limited functionality.


GoSign is to be used with:

  • Summa vinyl cutters SummaCut R(L) (firmware rev039 or higher), 
  • S Class 2 (firmware rev024 or higher) and 
  • S One (firmware rev005 or higher).



Solution 3 - Roll Cutter - WinPlot users - Export your job manually 


(When no update from WinPlot to GoSign is possible)


The Legacy Plugin of Summa has 2 functions:

  • Add OPOS markers around the design (to enable later contour cutting a printed OPOS job)
  • Export a design to Winplot (for cutters)


For adding OPOS markers you can also use the GoSign plugin. So installation of the GoSign plugin is described above.

See "Solution 1" above for installation of the GoSign plugin.


Exporting the job to Winplot will have to be done manually. This can be done easily by saving the job in PDF format and than import the job in WinPlot.



Solution 4 - Roll Cutter - WinPlot users - Downgrade Illustrator version


(When no update from WinPlot to GoSign is possible)


When you do not want to export the job manually to WinPlot than the only solution would be go back to the Illustrator 26.2.x


This can easily be done with your "Creative Cloud Desktop" software application.

  • Open the "Creative Cloud Desktop" application
  • Select "Other versions" next to the Illustrator application
  • Select the "Older version" - 26.2.x:
  • Select "Continue" to confirm the install of the old version:


Solution 5 - F Series - GoProduce users - Use GoProduce plugin 


Summa made a new plugin that supports latest Illustrator version:



Solution 6 - F Series - SummaFlex users - Update to GoProduce


Contact your supplier and check if you can update to GoProduce software. GoProduce software is not a free update. Contact your supplier for mor information.



Solution 7 - F Series - SummaFlex users - Use GoProduce plugin 


(When no update from SummaFlex to GoProduce is possible)


The Legacy Plugin of Summa has 2 functions:

  • Add Videomarkers around the design (to enable later contour cutting a printed OPOS job)


For adding OPOS markers you can also use the GoProduce plugin. So installation of the GoProduce plugin is described above (see "Solution 5")
