Fixing the speed issue in version 3.3.437


I have upgraded Silhouette Studio on my MacBook Pro to test it out and also found that the program had slowed down to a crawl.

This type of thing is often due to a setting in software so I did some investigating.

Sure enough, after running a bunch of tests and trying different things, I found that there is a setting that can be turned off to fix this problem.

In Preferences, select Advanced and then scroll down until you see the Include Cut Data option. Make sure this option is not selected to make Silhouette Studio faster.

One nice benefit is that the program loads almost instantaneously now.

  2. YOU ROCK!!!! But I am still afraid to update. I am having no issues other than i can't cut HTV on the HTV setting. Think I will stay with my older v3 for the moment. ;)

    1. I would still say that unless you are having problems, wait until you have a need to update.

    1. If you are using the latest version of the software and have this problem, you will have to contact customer service to get help with this issue.

  6. Will it effect the cut setting when you open an already saved file?

  10. There is a reason why I bought a Mac, it was not to be one of the cool kids that wanted the best of the best. No it was because of the music production I do on it. Hours and hours sitting in front of my Mac copying, pasting, moving, deleting, hour after hour just beating on my Mac in a endless assault to get my work done. That is the key part, my work. I work from home, it is great, but even if it is from home it is still work and it still needs to get done. So my Mac, I have it because it is fast, gets the job done and comes back for more.

    But what happens when it doesn't want to do those things anymore?

    I move around massive amounts of information and yes even on the almighty Mac this can cause a problem after a while. Things fragment, programs get corrupted issues come up. My light speed Mac slows down to a crawl and all of the sudden I simply can not get any work done. Because I work from home there is no IT guy to call and ask to come fix it. No instead I have to figure out what is wrong. I am lucky, I did, but not after trying everything under the sun first and wasting countless hours looking for one program that can do what I needed instead of ten programs. One program to lead them all….okay that was a lame Lord of the rings reference, but that program was/is Detox My Mac. A simple to use program that did not just fix my issues, it put my Mac on overdrive again. A few clicks and my Mac was clean and ready to rock and roll again.
