I'm sure now that you know you can can do this - you'll find other ways to use this awesome little know trick. For instance, adding an 8x24" size for when you tape two Portrait mats together, or a custom print and cut size mat (more on that in a tutorial tomorrow) or adding the Curio mats (because as you may know you can't access the Curio mats if your CAMEO was the last machine plugged in and vice versa).
Alright so to add custom page sizes in Silhouette Studio, open up the software.
Click on the Design Page settings window along the top tool bar.
Now if you right click on Page Size you'll get another small menu. Click "Add Media Size".
Note the Cutting mat option in the pane below does not change. If you were to use your new Portrait 8x24 option, you would simply pick CAMEO 12x24 as your mat.
Once you've added your custom page size you can find them to by scrolling to the bottom of the drop down menu.
This custom option is very useful for those who are both CAMEO and CURIO owners. Since the software only shows the material size of the most recent machine plugged in, it's difficult to design for the other if you don't know the material size. However, you can add the Curio mat sizes to your custom list so you'll always have access to them no matter what machine you last used.
Tomorrow I'm going to show you how to use this same trick for full page print and cuts. This makes cutting full sheets of designs very fast!
