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.

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