When I first saw this shape, I thought 'what the heck will I use that for" ...for some reason I thought it was a remote control lololol...now I realize that you can actually customize your 'control panel' on your Cameo itself Good to know.....

I've missed it also...how do you find it?

I'm glad you posted this...I saw this on the Silhouette Blog (how you customize the control panel) but I haven't had time to figure out where you find the file. Does anyone know?

The control panel file is one of the free 51 shapes that come with your Cameo!! Have you downloaded the cd? If not -- go to
restore intial 51
and they will all appear in your library!!!!
Hope it works for you

Somebody here posted a link to their blog showing how to do it.
My room is lime green and white so I used a scrap of old KI memories flowery paper in green. Voila~ matches perfectly and only took me a few minutes.

Keep the shape the same size, use a popstick to lift the plastic cover off, put your patterned paper in and you are done!

Thank you so much for the directions..my shapes didn't download when I set my Cameo up (probably cause I had the software installed already) you saved me a call to customer service!
I would have thought it was a remote if you hadn't told me otherwise! Too funny!

Oh my gosh! Thank you! Not only did I not know you could customize the control panel... I had no idea all of those shapes were just waiting to be downloaded!
