I've come across a problem today in my Silhouette Studio Designer Edition software and I haven't been able to find any help with Google searches, so I'm hoping someone can help. I'll try to explain the best I can.

Let's say you make two squares. When you select both squares, there's a a "center" crosshairs icon in the middle of your selection, between the two squares. Of course, the icon shows where the center of your images is. You can move those crosshairs so the "center" is not actually the visual "center".

Those crosshairs have moved off the screen, and no matter how long I scroll I can't reach the end of the line to move the crosshairs back to the center of the image(s).

I only get this issue when I select two images. If I weld them, group them, whatever, the center crosshairs go back to where they should... to the center.

I've tried closing the program and bringing it back up. I can start anew on a new work page (which takes care of the issue), but I've been working on this image all day and I'd REALLY like to not have to start over.

Am I making sense? I attached a Paint edited version of my screen.
Help?

I have had this happen before. I think it happens when you drag an image from it's center. I believe this causes the center to remain where the image was originally. I have found that you can go back to the original spot, grab the "center marker" and drag it back to the center of the shape.

Hey Powderhorngreen,

I know what you're saying, but I can't get to the "center marker". It's so far off the screen that no matter how long I scroll, I can never see it, so I can't drag it to where it should be. So frustrating!

Any other ideas?
