Silhouette V4 Software New Layout Part 2

Posted on 1st June 2017

The New Silhouette V4 software has been released and there are a lot of changes with the layout. This is part two of several tutorials showing where all the common functions are now located.

I am using the Designer Edition to run through the new layout.

1- Select tool.  Is the the same as the V3 software in the top left.


2-  Edit points. We now have a icon for edit points. This is a great new option where you can select any part of your design then select the edit point icon. When selected in the top toolbar all your options will appear that use to appear in a pop up box in V3.


3- Line tool. All the line tool options are now located in one icon. When you hover your select tool over the line tool a pop out box will appear with all the line options you can select. These were previously separate on the left toolbar in V3.


4- Shape tool. All the shape tools are now located in the same icon. Hover your select tool over the shape tool and a pop out box will appear giving you the option to select different shapes.


5- Draw tool. This includes draw freehand and draw smooth freehand.


6-  Then next 4 icons in the left toolbar include Text (1), Eraser tool (2), Knife tool (3), Transform property tool (4). Each of these tools when selected, their properties will now appear in the top toolbar rather than a pop up window like in V3.


7-  Next there is a top tool bar. Here you will find basic functions you will need for use with the silhouette software.
