I have a decal I am trying to cut in half because it's supposed to be 20 in wide and I have to 12 x 12 in pieces of vinyl. How can I cut half on one and half on the other in the vinylmaster v 4.0 program?

Two options, you can manually split the image and then cut each section individually or you can use the tile function. After you click on "send to cutter" the tab on the far right of the new screen sets up the automatic tiling. Turn on Automatic Tiling and set your vinyl dimensions and you should be good to go.

 I would add that if you do it manually you will want to add a little bit of overlap, about 1/4" is usually sufficient. This will keep it all together rather than ending up with a gap there when things shrink and expand. I am pretty sure that VM will allow you to set the overlap and do it as part of the automatic tiling feature which saves a lot of hassle.
