Original Silhouette help?

Postby jaycie » Thu Oct 13, 2011 2:09 pm

Hi
I bought an original Silhouette and absolutely love it, but sometimes when I am cutting out items that I have copied and pasted on the page the machine stops for some time. This can happen several times when doing an A4 page.

Eventually they get cut out, but can take ages. Any ideas please?
Thanks
Jaycie

Are you using the Robo software or have you updated to the Studio software. It is much better than the old software and you can download it and use it with older versions. Apparently it does help with the stopping issues.

sorry I can't help never come across that - I have a Craft Robo so maybe there were a few slight differences. I have notice that some of the fonts really are noisy - so maybe something to do with the image to start with?

You could try phoning Graphtec UK. They now deal with Craft Robo and Silhouette.
