Here is a YouTube video about Silhouette basics.

Hopefully that might answer your question.

May seem silly, but did you change the font color from white to black so your print shows up?

Select the item on your mat with your mouse (even though it's not showing up). Then touch on the line button and increase the point size of the lines until you can see the item.

Oh my goodness, THANK YOU Heidi! I was having the same problem as the OP. I never could figure this out and would use a fill in option to see what I was putting on the mat! That was so easy!!!

You are welcome. I found out how to do that on YouTube! YouTube is your friend, LOL.
