Let’s Explore v4 – Smart Snapping

If you have been using a Silhouette Studio version of v4.4.247 or higher, you may have noticed some new blue lines appearing on your Silhouette software.

This is a new feature called Smart Snapping and it is an alignment tool that can be helpful when creating designs.
As a design is moved around in the software, blue lines will appear that are showing where an object could be aligned with another object.

Smart Snapping can be found on the Page Setup Panel – Tab 2.
This is a new feature added to v4.4.247 or higher.

To toggle the Smart Snapping on, check the box next to “Enable Smart Snapping”. To toggle it off, uncheck the box next to “Enable Smart Snapping”.

Or clicking the ‘S’ key on the keyboard with toggle the Smart Snapping on and off too.

The “Tolerance” can be adjusted up or down. A tolerance level of 0.00″ means no smart snapping lines appear. Sliding the tolerance higher creates more smart snapping points.

The Smart Snapping lines will vary according to the design and objects on your page and their relation to each other.

If you have a more complex design, you will see a lot more of the blue lines appear.

Check out this quick video tutorial on my YouTube channel on how these Smart Snapping lines look and act.
