The bullseye in the center of each design when selected is called the Center of Rotation. Read on for more about how and when to use the center of rotation and how to remove it in Silhouette Studio.

It's easy though to turn off the bullseye in Silhouette Studio. 

If you want to get rid of the bullseye on the current design you're working on, simply press the letter "O" on your keyboard.
