If you're a new Silhouette Mint owner you may have noticed that when you downloaded and installed Mint Studio, the required software for the stamping machine, none of your designs from your Silhouette Studio library came over. (Of course if you don't have a Silhouette CAMEO, Portrait, SD or Curio, and only own the Mint you probably have no idea what I'm talking about and in that case - carry on. You'll build your library of designs as you go.)
But for those who have a Silhouette Studio library in the original software, you can access all of your designs and files in Mint Studio, as well.
The first thing you need to do is upgrade to Silhouette Studio V3. You need to export your Silhouette Studio library and V2 does not have the option to do this.
Now in Silhouette Studio V3 click on File along the top tool bar.
Go about two thirds of the way down the menu and click on Library > Export Library. Don't worry - your designs will remain in Silhouette Studio when you export. You are just making a copy.
Once you click on Export library you'll get a pop up box asking you where you want your entire Silhouette Library to be saved. To import your library into Mint Studio, it's best to save in a convenient place like your desktop. But it's really up to you - you can even export to an external hard drive.
Once you've exported your library, open up Mint Studio. The library will be empty.
Now in Mint Studio you're going to import the library that you just export from Silhouette Studio. So go to File > Library > Import Library and navigate to the exported library file. This is why you wanted to save it somewhere easy to find like your desktop.
In the pop up window on the right side, enter your Silhouette Design Store account username and password. Your library will begin loading into Mint Studio.
Now all of your Silhouette Studio files that were saved in your library and purchased from the store are in both Silhouette Studio and Mint Studio.
If you are not yet a Silhouette Mint owner or are still deciding whether or not to purchase, I would highly suggest you download Mint Studio now for free to give yourself a head start on learning how to use the new software.
