But how do you find the break and how do you fix it in Silhouette Studio? The key is edit points (here's everything you need to know about them). They're the little red, gray or white dots you see when you double click a shape or select it and then hit the edit points icon on the left side. The bright red dots will indicate the end of a line. Two next to each other means that's where the break is.
Let's use this silhouette as an example. Right now if I double click on it to get the edit points, they're all gray. That indicates the shape is completely closed. That's how we want it.
The two images below are the exact same...you can see that it would be tough to see where the break is without viewing the edit points. On the right, though, you can tell there's a break at the red dot (the break's so small the two dots are pretty much on top of each other).
And now you can go fill the shape with a color or a pattern and you can cut knowing there is no break in your design.
