This is great for when you download a file from somewhere other than the Silhouette Online Store, but you want to keep in it your library.
Let's say you download one of Silhouette School's Freebie Friday .studio files onto your computer, but you want to have it saved in your Studio library so you can delete it off your computer.
All you have to do is open Silhouette Studio. Click File > Import > Import to Library. (Be careful not to pick File > Library > Import...that is a totally different function!)
You'll get a pop up window.
Navigate to the file on your computer that you'd like to save to your Silhouette Studio library. Select it and click 'ok.'
The file name will be automatically detected in the Edit Properties pane. No need to actually edit anything here so simply hit 'close'.
If you want to double check that the file is now in your library, go to the library and search for the file by name.
If you have Designer Edition, this also works for JPEGs that you want to use as Custom Patterns. You won't be able to save them directly to the My Patterns folder with this method, however. If you go through the File > Import > Import to Library process, you can then drag and drop the jpeg image from the My Library folder to the My Pattern folder and now you've created a custom pattern that can fill a shape.
