If you are using an imported design (from a location other than the Silhouette Design Store) and using it as a fill pattern, the software freezing likely indicates that the fill pattern files are too large.

Resampling the Original Design

To resolve this concern:

  1. Open Silhouette Studio
    NOTE: Make sure you are running the latest version
  2. Go to the Library
  3. Right-click on the pattern in question in your Library
  4. Select Delete Item
  5. Right-click on the library's Recycle Bin
  6. Select 'Empty Recycle Bin'
  7. Download following zip file: https://dl.silhcdn.com/6fa66d0def76c9af
  8. Unzip the file and run the 'Resample Images' program
  9. Re-sample the original designs to a lower pixel rate by dragging and dropping files to have them converted automatically 

This process will re-sample the original images to make them smaller and friendlier for the Silhouette Studio program. We would recommend to re-sample into a JPG at a rate of 500px.

  1. Import the converted image back into the Library
