CRICUT: Design Space iOS app update

Cricut have just released an update to the Design Space iOS app.

This update allows you to move images between mats while you're at the cut preview screen.  That means you don't have to go back to the design screen to move your images to a different cutting mat.

In this image below you can see that I have seven hearts on the canvas.


When I click "Send to Mat" the images are placed on two separate mats with four hearts on one mat and three on the other.

But I know that I can fit five on one mat and two on the other thereby saving some of my cardstock.

If I tap on one of the hearts on the second mat you will see 3 dots appear in the top left corner of that image.


When I click on those dots a menu appears with two options.


I tap on the Move to another Mat option and this box appears.


I click on Mat 1 and that heart will be moved to that mat. The heart I moved has been placed on top of one of the other hearts and has a yellow border around it.


I can tap on that heart and drag it into the middle of the mat.


Now with that image still selected I can use the rotate handle to turn it 180deg.

Adjust the position of the hearts as needed so that none of them have a yellow border. (That indicates that they are touching).

You also have the option of hiding images on the cut screen. This is useful if you want to recut just some of the images on a mat. 

Tap on the three dots then tap Hide Selected. 


To unhide an image tap the "Hidden" button below the mat and select the images you wish to unhide. 


You have the option of moving images to a new mat. It's great if you want to change the colour of some of your images at the last minute. 

Just select the Create New Mat option at this screen.
