Silhouette Sunday #10: New update for Silhouette Software

There is new update for Sihouette Studio. It is for all versions (Silhouette Studio and Silhouette Designer Edition). Before you download it, I think you should see what a few other’s are saying:

  • Kerri Bradford | Studio Yes, this is version 3. I wouldn’t update until more bugs are worked out. Word on the street is saying that the beta testers were even saying don’t update yet. I think overall you’d be fine if you really wanted to and if it was bothersome then you could reinstall the previous version that they have on the Silhouette site. So you can go back if you don’t like it. 

I would say if you can, hold off for the bugs to get worked out. Often times updates are rushed to release with the intention of some free troubleshooters (us) and then they make revisions.  I would also say hold off from the update if you are a beginner. The new interface and functionality can be a bit overwhelming.

Here is a link to the release notes

Take time to read them click on the links to see examples of what new functionality the new software will provide. 

I did update because I am up for the challenge of learning something new so I will add this to my list of things to help you explore here on Silhouette Sunday once I play around with it. Change can be very unnerving but overall I believe they are trying to give us more. Very exciting things are happening!

Happy Crafting!



  1. Thanks for the info. I updated too, but haven’t played with it yet. 🙂 We’ll see what happens. April

    • Well April you and I will rise to the occasion and master the new version. I don’t have a problem because I like the challenge of learning something new and luckily I wasn’t working on anything pressing that the upgrade will impede.

    I’ve read the review by Kay on Clever Sunday and Debbie of Doodling Debbie and the Silhouette forum and they all advise to hold off installing. Big change in the cut, no cut feature is the reason I won’t install yet. I do use that option a lot when creating files. Love the new drawing tools but can wait for them.

    • Hi Cathy! I did see that was a concern. I too use the cut no cut feature but I am sure that will be rectified soon because I think it is raising a lot of concern. I do like the new look but feel it will be overwhelming for many. See you tomorrow!
