The Silhouette Studio® software is the powerhouse behind any Silhouette cutting machine. It’s loaded with so many features that can do so many different things. If you’re wondering what features are available and what each feature does, you’ve come to the right place. Here’s the list of every feature offered in the four editions of Silhouette Studio® (Basic Edition, Designer Edition, Designer Edition Plus, and Business Edition). Many of the features have a blog post or a video (or both!) explaining how you can use that feature to create your designs. Silhouette 101 will make you a pro at using your machine in no time!
