So you have Designer Edition, but you still can't get your Silhouette CAMEO or Portrait to cut the files? Fear not! While it is necessary to have Silhouette Studio Designer Edition to import SVGs there is one more step you have to take to get them actually cut.
To import SVGs into Silhouette Studio go to Open > Navigate to Saved SVGs on computer (If you downloaded a file as part of a zip file, make sure you unzip it).
When you hit 'Okay' the SVG design will open up in your Studio work area. This olive branch design is from Miss Kate Cuttables...it was one of her recent free daily downloads.
But...there's one major piece missing and it's the reason if I sent this to the Silhouette right now it wouldn't cut. There are NO cut lines around the shapes.
To fix it and add cut lines, highlight the entire design.
Then open up the Cut Settings Window. (If you're still on V2 it's the scissors with the little red line through it.)
Click 'Cut' and everything will get a cut line around it.
