Most of our designs we sell consist of two or more layers. You will always know which designs have multiple layers; as they will have more than one color.  For example, listings shown with five colors will have five layers (cuts) and listings shown in one color are just one cut. You can ungroup the files into individual layers by doing the following:

CRICUT DESIGN SPACE

♡ Once you have opened the SVG file on your design mat, click on the Layers Panel.

♡ Click anywhere in the design to select it.  This will select the full design with all of the layers in the Layers Panel.

♡ With the layers still highlighted, click the Ungroup button on the top of the Panel.

♡ Now you can work with each layer individually.

  • To resize your design, you must do so before ungrouping, this way everything remains as one object.

 

Silhouette Studio Designer Edition

♡ Once you have opened the SVG file on your design mat, select Edit, Layers in the top menu bar; this will open the “Layers Menu” on the right side of the screen.

♡ You will see that there is a main layer, with a series of layers detailed below.  Click on each layer to move it individually.

  • More complex designs may have sub-groups within the layers, particularly ones with multiple layers of the same color. If this is the case, you will see that one of the of the layers will be labeled Group on the panel.  When you click on these layers on the design mat, simply right-click to further ungroup and reveal the sub-layers below.
