Big Change to SVG Designs in Silhouette Studio V4.2

There's a big change to how Silhouette Studio treats imported SVG designs in the latest version of Silhouette Studio V4.2.

No longer will SVG designs come into the Silhouette software with the cut lines turned off by default!


The option to change the way SVG files import - with the cut lines on by default - was first rolled out in Silhouette Studio V4.2.430.


Previously there were not settings for Silhouette Studio SVG imports and therefore no way to change  the "No Cut" default for imported SVG designs. This caused quite a bit of confusion especially from Silhouette beginners who did not realize the SVG cut lines needed to be turn on and instead either traced the design to create cut lines or were left frustrated with a design that would not cut.

Now it's possible through the Preferences menu at the bottom right corner of Silhouette Studio.

Click on the gear icon to open the Silhouette Preferences and then select the Import tab. 

From there you can adjust how cut lines of SVG designs act on import. By default the cut lines will be on, but you can change that back to No Cut or pick Cut Edge or Cut 0.1 pt lines.
