How to Change Silhouette Studio Selection Box Default Settings

I know I can't be the only one who's OCD starts to kick in when I select multiple shapes in Silhouette Studio and get 8683 little green rotational handles and the dimension of every single piece of the design pops up.

There's just too much going on there and I find it difficult to 'see' what I'm doing in this mode.

It's easy to turn that setting off so that when multiple objects are selected each object has a box around it, but there's only one green dot.

What you want to is click the little gear at the very bottom of Silhouette Studio. This will open up the Preferences window.   In the window click Selection.

Then under the "When Many Objects Selected" category click "Single Bounding Box."  Be sure to click Apply or your selections won't save.

By doing this, when you select multiple shapes, you'll now get this result instead of the above.
