How to Save SVG Designs Directly to Silhouette Studio Library (V4)

There are several ways to open and save designs in Silhouette Studio.

If you want to import designs into your Silhouette Studio library, including SVGs, PNGs, or DXF files, you don't even need to bring them into a work area first...and you don't have to do the drag and drop method if that's not your thing.

I typically prefer the drag and drop into a library folder method, myself, but sometimes it fights with you on where to drop.

That's when the File > Import is helpful.

Keep in mind this method is not a bulk import into Silhouette Studio method, but a single file import.

To save a design directly to Silhouette Studio open Silhouette Studio.  Click the File Menu along the top.

From the File menu click Library and then Import to Library.

That "to" is very important. "Import Library" is something very different - that's for if you need to import a complete copy of your library back up as an exe file.)

Once you click Import to Library a box will pop up. Locate the file to be imported into your library and then click "Okay."

  4. Thank you for this! I wish there was a way to select more files instead of one by one. With everything I have saved, it's going to take me forever to do it!
