Keyboard Shortcuts in Silhouette Studio

Now, you may see this title and think, “I’m not really a keyboard shortcut kind of person.” I will tell you that even if you use one or two, you’ll be saving yourself tons of time and effort. So I highly encourage you to take a look at this list of my favorite keyboard shortcuts and find one or two to try for a while. You may discover you’ve been missing out on a quick and easy thing this whole time! Personally, I can’t imagine life without keyboard shortcuts after using them.

My top favorites I use ALL THE TIME are Group, Duplicate, and Show Crosshairs in addition to the standard Copy, Cut, and Paste. If I’m working in the same work space within Silhouette Studio, I don’t tend to use Copy and Paste near as much because Duplicate does the same thing.
