Accessing Fonts and Glyphs with the Silhouette Curio

1- Open Silhouette Studio. Go to the cutting mat and change to the curio. Next Change the media size to fit the curio mat. A5 will work well.

2- With the 2 sections changed you will see that the mat on the screen now is the curio mat.

3- Select the text tool and type your text.

4-  Select your text and click on the text style tool.

5- There is a new panel which will will appear. Here you can select any of your fonts that are installed in your PC. Select a font and the text that is selected will change to that font. I am using the font Samantha script upright bold from fontbundles.net

6- You can change your font any time as long as you select the text and then select a font in your style panel. The font used here is called Blackfat script from fontbundles.net

7- If the font you have selected came with any glyphs you can select the glyph option. A selection of glyphs will appear for you to select.

8- If you hover over a glyph it will become bigger for you to see which one to select.

9- Place your cursor where you would like the glyph. You can delete the letter you do not need that you are replacing with a glyph. Next click on the glyph you would like to use. It will appear where your cursor is.

10- You can repeat this as many times as you would like in your text.

11- Once you are happy with the finished glyphs and text, right click and group. If you want all the letters to join (if overlapped) you can click weld to join the overlapping letters.

12- Click on send when you are finished. You will see that the glyphs act as text and and will have cut lines automatically .
