Design Studio - update available

There is a Design Studio update for the newer cartridges available now on the site.  Click HERE to go to the download page.  You will need to be signed in to the site to do the download.  Be sure to save the update and then run it so it will install correctly.  The last update was back in April so there is a long list of cartridges that were added.  Here is a list with the "Hello Thursday" release dates.

Girl's Makeup Party

If you install the updated list of cartridges and you are still missing some of your cartridges, you may not be current with the program updates.  You should have Version 1.0.40422.0 (you can check by clicking the "Help" menu in Design Studio and selecting "about" from the bottom of the list).

When you click the download link for the Cartridge Content Update you will see that the latest version is V110708.  I am not sure when the update appeared - I have been checking every couple of days and just found it Tuesday night.

Save the update and then run it to install the new fonts.  When you restart your Design Studio program the cartridges will be included.  I believe that they all were added in the "All by Cartridge" - "Font" section.  If you have already purchased some of the newest cartridges you will need to find them on the list and then go to the Preferences menu and add them to the "My Cartridges" list.  Once you do this you can use the My Cartridges list which will make your cartridges easier to locate since it is in strict alphabetical order and not divided by type.

The Gypsy update is done through the Cricut Sync Program.  Plug in your Gypsy with the USB cable and open the Cricut Sync program and follow the on-screen directions.  There are two sections - the regular cartridge information transfer went smoothly for me but the Imagine cartridge section of the update seems to get "stuck" - I am leaving it to run overnight with fingers crossed!

Construction is continuing on the ice dam repairs and modifications, the electrician is coming to put my overhead lights in today and I leave for Wisconsin on Thursday (and then head on to Chicago Sunday for CHA) - things are a little crazy around here!
