Let’s Explore v4 – Draw a Note
Did you know that you can add a note to your Silhouette file?
This option has been in the software for awhile, but depending on what version you are using, it may work better in later versions. In the current v4.4 software version, it does seem to be behaving as it should.
This tutorial is written in v4.4.455
The Draw a Note tool is found on the left side.
Click on the Draw a Note and your mouse will change to a text cursor.
Click on the Design Space to add a note box.
I would suggest clicking in the gray “holding area” off the cutting mat.
In the past, there were some versions that the note would get “stuck” and you couldn’t delete or edit it. For this reason, I would not suggest placing it in the cutting space on the screen. Just in case.
Type whatever information you would want to remember with this file such as text style names, sizes, colors, etc.
Want to delete the note, click the X in the top right corner of the box.
Want to change the size of the note, move the cursor on the outer edge and it will change to allow you to drag the size. This is limited in how much you can change the box.
In the top left corner, when the Draw a Note feature is active, you will see options for changing the text color, font style, size, and other options.
Note: each version of the Silhouette Studio software may vary. Older versions may not have these options and may still have some bugs in the Notes feature.
