BECOME A CRICUT PRO – HIDDEN CRICUT SETTINGS
The first hidden Cricut setting that was a game changer is how to show and hide the grid background on Cricut Design Space.
A lot of people don’t realize you have the option to show and hide the grid on Cricut Design Space. It is not a very obvious Cricut setting, and you may not even know it exists.
At the top on the left side, there is an “undo” button. Right below that is a small square.
Click in the square and it will remove the small squares in the background. Click on that square again, it will remove the grid.
Click in the small square again and it will bring back the larger squares.
Click in the small square again and it will bring back the smaller squares.
So clicking in that small box below the under buttons will show and hide the Cricut Grid in Cricut Design Space.
Adding and removing the grid helps you with picturing your final design without the distraction or helps you to evenly design your projects.
DUPLICATE Cricut DESIGN
Another hidden Cricut setting is all the different ways you can duplicate your image.
There are a couple of different ways to duplicate your design. And you may not know all the different ways to duplicate Cricut Designs.
- Right click on the image and click duplicate in the drop down menu.
- Go the layers panel and duplicate your image from there
- When you click Make It, you’ll see print copies on the top right. You can select the amount of copies and select apply. It will appear on the mat on the screen.
LOCK IMAGES TOGETHER
Cricut Design Space has a feature called attach that will lock images together.
When the images are attached together, they’ll cut in the exact same configuration that is shown on the canvas.
It is very easy to use the attach feature. You’ll need to select all the images or layers that you want to attach. Then on the bottom right side select “attach”.
When you go to cut the design, the images will be in the same exact same configuration because the images were locked together.
MAKE EXTRA CASH: CRICUT PROJECTS TO SELL
If the text you are using is cursive, you’ll want to make sure you weld the letters together.
Welding the letters together makes sure each cursive word cuts all together instead of cutting individual letters.
It’s the worst when you forget to weld your project and it cuts each letter individually.
Once your text is ready to be cut, select the text, and on the bottom right corner select Weld.
MOVE DESIGN TO A DIFFERENT MAT
After you click the Make it, if all the items are the same color, they’ll cut on the same mat (as long as they all fit).
If there is an image that you don’t want to cut or you want to cut in a different color, you can easily move the design to a different mat.
On the prepare page, Click on the image and click on the three dots. Then select move object.
Click Next and then pick any color. The color doesn’t matter because the image will cut on the material you are using.
Click confirm and the image will be moved to a new Mat so it will not cut with the rest of the projects
Another hidden Cricut setting is favoriting materials you are using with your Cricut.
If you have a certain product you use often with your Cricut Machine, you can set the material as a favorite; so it remembers your settings.
Especially if you often work with a small handful of products regularly, using the favorite feature will save you time for selecting settings every time.
SAve the product as a favorite and you’ll always use the same settings.
Just select the custom cutting setting. Select your product and edit your settings, and click the favorite icon.
