Silhouette Studio Diagonal Stray Cut FIX (V3 Troubleshooting Tutorial)

Silhouette Studio, diagonal stray cut, fix
Usually I'm about a week or two ahead with a bunch of tutorials in the queue just waiting to go live on the blog. Today, however, I bumped everything at the last minute, because I think this tutorial on how to fix a rather big problem in Silhouette Studio is pretty important and rather timely. 

The issue is a diagonal stray cut line that cuts across the design as the blade returns from the last cut point to its "home base".  This has been a nagging problem for many Silhouette users - specifically those who updated to Silhouette Studio (v3.3.437) over the last month or so. 

When I asked the Silhouette School Facebook followers how many of you had experienced this issue while cutting...many hands were raised! 
Well, it looks like reporting the issue to Silhouette America has made a difference!  Late last week SA released a new update specifically to address this issue which includes a patch to repair the bug.  All you have to do is download the latest software update Silhouette Studio (3.3.451) to fix the issue.

This is a free update and is available here on the Silhouette America website.

 IMPORTANT: Do not confuse this with updating from Legacy (Version 2) to Version 3..this was just a small tweak of the program and overall Version 3 is "safe".  If you're still on the fence about updating to Silhouette Studio Version 3 here are 10 tips for "V3 newbies."

And the moral of the story is: If you experience a bug in Silhouette Studio - report it!!!
