Let's say you've purchased the new Lovely Craft Bundle set from Craft Bundles or another set from The Hungry JPEG. It's stocked full of beautiful commercial use fonts and graphics.
I mean look at this...
The question I get about these sets all the time is: "How do I import downloaded files into Silhouette Studio?"
The first step in getting these designs into your Silhouette Studio library is to download them onto your computer. Depending on what version of Silhouette Studio you are working on, will determine what file type is best for you to download. IN general, if you have Designer Edition, download the SVG files. If you don't, you can go for DXF or PNG.
Now you need to find where the files have downloaded. Usually it will be a Downloads folder.
Whatever it's called - open it up to view all the files in there. If all you see is a Zip file you will need to unzip them before importing into Silhouette Studio.
Now start selecting all the files. You can hold down shift to select multiple files.
At the same time, open up Silhouette Studio and go to your library. Both windows should be sharing the screen. Select all of the files you want to move into your Silhouette Studio library.
In your library, focus on where you are going to put the downloaded files. I keep all my commercial use graphics in a separate folder in my Local User library. You can see I have called the filed Commercial Use.
Now drag and drop the files right into the Commercial folder in your Silhouette Studio library. Watch to make sure that the number in parentheses changes by the same number of files tha tyou are trying to import. For instance, I started with (40) in the Commercial Use folder and I imported 10 so now I have (50).
TIP: In some versions of Silhouette Studio you can only drag and drop into the window - rather than the folder.
And that's all there is to bulk importing SVG files, PNG files or other file types into your Silhouette Studio library.
This way of bulk importing files into your Silhouette Studio library will save you a lot of time over adding files one by one.
