Silhouette Studio V4.2: Sneak Peek of Library Updates

Silhouette Studio V4.2 remains in closed beta but a new closed beta version was just rolled out to the small group of beta testers so now I can give you guys a sneak peek of some of the updates to the Silhouette Studio Library.

Many of the changes are new features that have long been requested by users. There's also one that's returning after a year-long hiatus in V4.0 and V4.1.

Silhouette Studio Library Thumbnails

A thumbnail size slider has been added to the Silhouette library allowing Silhouette software users the ability to change the size of the design previews.

When Silhouette Studio V4.2 is released you'll be able to see more library designs on your screen by reducing the size of the thumbnails.

Or pull the slider bar the other way to increase the size of the thumbnail to get a closer look.

The thumbnails themselves don't get much bigger than in previous versions of the software however, you can also hover over a design to enlarge it.

Want it even bigger? Click on the little icon in the bottom right corner of the enlarged preview.

That will pop up a bigger - albeit slightly pixelated (currently) - preview.

Favorite Designs

You can now "favorite" designs in your library by either clicking the gray star under the design preview to turn it blue or right clicking and selecting "Favorite Design."

Favorited designs will go into a Favorite folders - either in the Local User library or on the Cloud depending on where the design originated.

Library and Design Page Split Screen Returns

The popular split screen between the Silhouette Studio Library and the design page will return! Get to the split screen by starting in the Design tab. Toward the lower left you'll see an arrow next to a library tab. Click it and your screen will split.

From the split screen you can drag and drop designs from your library directly into the work area.
