Missing Content from Silhouette Design Store

If you are not able to find your download content (fonts, patterns, designs) which was, at one point, purchased from the Silhouette Design Store, the steps below will allow you to recover this content into your library.

Some tips to finding your designs:

  • Please ensure all library folders are expanded. If a folder has a + sign inside it, you can click on the folder symbol to expand it
  • Any purchased Fonts will be automatically downloaded to your Fonts folder. Digital patterns will be in your patterns folder. All others should download to your Recent Downloads folder
  • SVG content will not download automatically to your Silhouette Studio library, however, a .studio format copy will be in your library. For help retrieving SVG content purchased from the Silhouette Design Store, please visit https://www.silhouetteamerica.com/faq/solution/svg-bundle-overview
Checking your software version

Later versions of Silhouette Studio (version 3.7 and higher) introduced the cloud library structure. In order to properly retrieve your purchased content, you will need to follow the steps below for either CLOUD or NON-CLOUD libraries. This will depend on the software version you are running. Please check your software version with the following steps:

  1. Open the Silhouette Studio software program
