Silhouette Studio 4: Confirmed New Features and Tools

I'm super excited to be able to share with you some of the confirmed new feature in Silhouette Studio 4. The best part is these are design features and tools A LOT of Silhouette Studio users have requested been begging for!
Silhouette Studio Version 4 V4 2016 update New features

As one of the invited early beta testers for Silhouette Studio 4, I've been sworn to secrecy about certain things, but I have been given the go-ahead to spill some details of new features and tools that are not only coming - but have been highly demanded by Silhouette crafters.
Last week I put the call out for requests on the Silhouette School Facebook page and many of you chimed in which is totally awesome. I passed along that rather lengthy 'Silhouette Studio 4 Wish List'  to the people who can make them happen (or at least consider it!) and YOU GUYS they're already on it!!

So what new features will Silhouette Studio 4 have? Without further ado...
  • Status bar to show how long a cut will take and time remaining in cut (will be available in 4.0 on all versions of Silhouette Studio) 
  • Font list to display frequently used fonts at top rather than in alphabetical order
  • Improved display of commercial fonts   
  • Object to Path (like text to path, but for designs!)
Keep in mind some of these, specifically the font display improvements, may not be available until 4.1 or 4.2...but they are on Silhouette's radar and they are coming!

I've also passed along other feedback and frequent requests such as a larger machine size, larger thumbnail designs in Silhouette Studio, the ability to create word art in Studio, options to export as SVG and JPEG, more basic shapes such as stars and hearts, skipping 'zoom in/out' while using the 'undo' function, and offering a direct link to designers' websites' for designs purchased from Silhouette Store.  

Finally, Silhouette Studio 4 is slated to be released later this year and will work with the new CAMEO 3 as well as older machines.
