So there's big news in the Silhouette world...there's a new software upgrade.  The April 2014 upgrade known as Silhouette Studio V3 was released on April 2nd and it has some big improvements including the almighty AUTOSAVE! That deserves an AMEN in and of itself! How about another?! AMEN!!

How many of you have been working on a project only to have Silhouette Studio crash and goodbye unsaved hardwork? Yeah, we've pretty much all been there.  The new edition finally gives us an autosave feature as well as some other really cool stuff like spell check.   I'm the worst speller and the fastest typer so while I try very hard not to have typos I'm sure you've picked up on a few. Guilty. Sorry.

The upgrade for the basic Silhouette Studio edition also includes improved drawing tools in the way of Polygon, Arc, Freehand, and Smooth Freehand, updated keyboard shortcuts, advanced cut settings including auto weld overlapping images, cut line sorting to adjust order of images being cut, layer sorting and a library backup feature along with a few other goodies. 
If you have Designer Edition, the most recent upgrade includes the ability to cut by layer, import PDFs, a shadow tool and a nesting feature.

Now you're asking - okay so how do I get all this good stuff? All you need to do is open up Silhouette Studio and you will be prompted to install the upgrade.  Or you can go here to download the latest version.

This doesn't mean all the tutorial we've shared on Silhouette School are now old news, definitely not. It just means you'll see a few extra icons up top mixed in with the pre-existing tool buttons.

We'll be taking a look at the new features more closely over the next few weeks if you want to follow along and learn how to use all the fun new stuff in Silhouette Studio.

Thanks for coming to class today at Silhouette School.  If you like what you see, I'd love for you to pin it!
