Design won't engrave

I’m working in laser burn to a k40 with a cohesion 3d board. I send design to laser, but it will only engrave a line and just stays in same area engraving the same line over and over and not the design itself. In this case, just a word. Any ideas as to what I am doing wrong. Thank you.

You might have the “interval” setting really low, or the DPI setting really high (both would have the same effect).

What is the value of this setting?:

That’s how far the scanned lines are apart, so if you’ve set it to be really small, it may do what you’re suggesting. It’s also possible that you’ve enabled the Rotary button, which adjusts the vertical scale.
