That's what I keep saying Carolyn. I had it down to cut some silhouette style Christmas cards and also cut lots of card angels for the grandchildren to decorate and then hang on their family Christmas Tree at their church Christmas Tree festival.

do you have the designer edition of silhouette? I thought I used to be able to open svg files, but can't now.

You can open them in Inkscape. I forget how to get them from Inkscape into Studio. No, I don't have the Designer Edition

Not used my Robo in yonks :o Not really been making cards though and when I do I've been using stuff I already had cut.
Must get back into it in 2015....
