Removing the Center Rotation in Silhouette Studio

Did you ever try to move a design around Silhouette Studio and you accidentally click that center rotation/cross hairs thing instead? Then your design is kind of attached to an axis as it moves around Studio?   I'm just going to lay it all out there and say it drives me nuts. There. I said it.

Silhouette Studio, remove center rotation, turn off center rotation

  Thankfully, it's actually possible - and very quick - to remove that center rotation. Buh bye!
With Silhouette Studio open, click the gear in the bottom right corner. If you have Silhouette Studio Business Edition it may have moved to the top right corner.  Clicking that gear opens up the Preferences window.


Now you want to click on the 'Defaults' option. When you do that, you'll get a list of defaults that can be changed. 

Find "Center of Rotation" and then check the circle for "Don't Show Center of Rotation."  Click Apply to make the changes stick.

Now your designs will no longer have that center rotation/axis point.   If you need to bring it back for any reasons, repeat the steps and just choose "Show Center Rotation."
