Transferring Your Designs

On your old computer, open up Silhouette Studio and navigate to “My Designs” in the Library window. Select all of the designs that you want to transfer over and drag them onto the external drive or USB stick.

Then plug that same external drive into your new computer and open up Silhouette Studio again.

Select “My Designs” in the Library window once more and drag all of those designs over into that folder.

Click on “Browse” next, then select where you would like these settings saved (such as an external hard drive or USB stick). Once both computers have saved their preferences, simply copy those files over onto your new computer.
