Why Purchased Silhouette Designs Aren't In Your Library

Silhouette Store, Silhouette library, not in library
A few weeks ago I added a Silhouette CAMEO to my collection of craft supplies essentials. I've been plugging along on my Portrait for almost a year now and having no issues, but when I spotted an awesome deal on the Cameo I decided it was finally time to upgrade.

Fast forward a few weeks and I realized NONE of the designs I had purchased or downloaded from the Silhouette Design Store, since adding the CAMEO, were showing up in my Silhouette library.

I was able to recover them in a round about way - opening Studio and clicking on the FILE menu > Download Pending Orders.  But I really didn't want to have to do this every time I opened up Silhouette Studio so I'm glad I figured out the issue: I never registered my Silhouette CAMEO.

As soon as I registered by CAMEO the designs started auto-downloading in my library the next time I opened up Silhouette Studio after making the purchase from the store.

So now you want to know how to register your machine. All you have to do to register a Silhouette machine is fill out this online registration form.

Now if you lose Silhouette Store designs that you have previously downloaded into your library you can recover them. But that's worth another tutorial because it's slightly more involved. Be on the look out for that on the blog soon.

So to recap, if you have failed to register your machine, you can download designs from the Silhouette Design Store, but they won't automatically install in your library...but they're not lost forever and you don't have re-purchase the designs, you just need to register your Silhouette.
