The problem was the tape was adhered to the back of the paper and was rolling up onto itself. GRRRRR!!
Has anyone else had a problem with the general purpose tape being stringy?
It's good to know I'm not alone, although I'm sorry you're going through the same thing as I am. I thought I was going crazy. I must have threaded my ATG 3 times before I realized that it wasn't me; it was the *%$!+ tape.
I haven't tried the GP tape; I've got the acid free one and haven't had any trouble with that.
