SVG file capability (Designer Edition)

printer friendly

The Silhouette Studio® Designer Edition provides the ability to open SVG files directly which have been created from other major vector imaging software programs (such as Adobe Illustrator® or CorelDraw®).



To access this feature in the Designer Edition, go to the File menu and select Open. If on a PC, you will need to select the file type you are seeking to open and select the SVG option.

If using Silhouette Studio® V3.0 & higher:

You may either select to cut by layer and simply enable the desired layers, or opt to cut by line color and either enable the "no color" line to be cut or re-color your lines as desired using the Line Color tool.

If using Silhouette Studio® V2.9.45 & lower:

As SVG files may contain multiple lines, some of which are intended for printing rather than cutting, to enable the desired cut lines you may go to the Cut Style menu (the icon that looks like scissors cutting a red line) and select the desired cut line style for your imported SVG image.
