Is it possible to have a menopause relapse after more than 25 years? Because I think it's happening to me now! Tears have been brought on just like the "change." (not a pretty sight)
Today started out like a normal Saturday - wake early, drink coffee and read emails.
Then I decided I would update Silhouette Studio. Was not worried - the others have all gone smoothly. Well it did update without a hitch. So what's my problem, you ask?
The changes! Nothing works like it used to. I did not know how to do all the "extra" stuff DE allowed but I could choose a file, put paper on a mat, load said mat, choose paper type, double cut or not and press cut. It worked. My extra thick cover stock - speed 1 or 2, blade 9 and double cut - cut perfectly.
This morning I happily sat down to cut some more Easter stuff. (hubby gone for a couple of days) Set up looks different but I didn't panic. (I can do this) right?
I chose the egg wreath to cut. I wanted heavy cs for the base. When you choose the materials you are using, the menu for the blade settings drops down. I chose speed 1, blade 9, and double cut. Simple, right?
You do not hit "cut" now it's "send to silhouette." I can deal with that.
It starts cutting. It pauses between cuts. After it cuts the first line, it pauses 5 to 10 seconds before it moves on. When it finished it paused 22 seconds before moving the carriage to the left to remove the mat. It did not double cut, I had to manually start at the beginning 3 times to get it to cut through the cover stock. Oh but then I couldn't remove the mat, and I couldn't move the cut off the mat and put the rest of the design on the mat. I had to "open the move window" to remove the design or get a new one to cut. How is extra steps better?
I know it's probable my fault, something I'm not doing right, but come on it worked fine before. I wish I had not updated. This reminds me of the dreaded Gypsy updates. UGH!
Any suggestions that will save my sanity would be greatly appreciated.
If you lasted through all this, bless you!
Hugs and God bless. Stephanie
