 Congrats on getting your Cameo Angela!   Fantastic!

Margaret that is where I went wrong.

I thought  V2 would over ride V3 so I had not  uninstalled V3 first  before I tried to reinstall V2.

V3 had over ridden V2 when  I originally  installed it . But an older version will not  over ride  an newer   version  

Comment by Barbara Spanheimer on April 22, 2014 at 9:39pm

Also  they have a manual for V3 on the Silhouette site

 Even that has a little glitch and some omissions . The page number are on the bottom. If you try to print the pages  the  odd page numbers on the lower right side  are cut off. I tried  "Scale to fit page" but that didn't work . Then I tried reducing it to 98% and  that  fixed that problem . 

The  nice index we had in the back of the manual is gone.   All we have is the  chapter  index in the front . groan 

Silhouette has great customer service so I am sure all of this will eventually be ironed out

Barbara, I uninstalled V3 before I tried to reinstall v2.  I had no problems at all even though I expected a lot.  I won't reinstall v3 until I am sure all of the bugs are worked out.

Comment by Barbara Spanheimer on April 22, 2014 at 9:29pm

Margaret, I tried to  go back to V2 and that is when it all fell apart. V2 would not open and V3 was laying in the trash and I had nothing that worked . 

It took me hours to  uninstall and reinstall the mess ,  When I finally got V3  to  open and limp along  I decided to leave well enough alone . I have The original V3 Titanic version  Oy !

I am not going to download the updates to  V3 until they say they have fixed everything they can. Then the  experts will have developed some  workarounds for the  features they can't fix . 

Comment by Margaret Gilmer on April 22, 2014 at 8:36pm

I went back to 2.9.45 with my Cameo.  I had too many problems with V3 (the Titanic version).  I also was not happy with the changes they made.  It seemed to me like it was harder to do some of the simple things I do.  I think I'll stick with the V2 until I am forced to upgrade.

Hi everyone I have been so imprest with my Portrait I decide to splash out and buy the Cameo it arrived yesterday.  After I purchased my Cameo I put my Portrait up for sale and sold it.  I am a very happy lady.  Hugs A

 Silhouette  has an update for V3 which  fixes "some" of the bugs .

Now they have several Beta testers working to uncover glitches and help find workarounds . Everything is not yet fixed 

After the saga of  installing - uninstalling- reinstalling that I experienced a couple weeks ago I am not  going to install the V3 updates until they say it is the best they can do .  Right now I have V3 working for most things  and I don't want to rock the boat .

Thank you for your suggestion Barbara!  I will check out the link!  

Welcome Jaqueline!!    How cute  Are those files from SVG Cuts?   So cute!    

Comment by Andrea Beecroft on April 15, 2014 at 6:18am

Hi Jacqueline so nice to meet you.  What beautiful projects you have done they are just so neat.  I have the Portratte and just love it, there are not many days go by when I don't use it.  The new upgrade did cause me a few problems but I have sorted it for what I need now.  Hugs A
