Edit SVG File Cricut – Step by Step
- Once you find the SVG file you want to edit, upload it to Cricut Design Space.
You shouldn’t have to clean it up. Just name it and click ok. It should now be on Cricut and all you have to do is click on it and then click Insert Image at the bottom right corner.
- Resize Image.
Resize your SVG file so we can comfortably work with it in CDS. Its not permanent, just so we can see it clearly. After we are all done you can size it to where you need it to be. So just drag the bottom right icon either up or down.
- The beauty of an SVG file is that it is created in layers and we can manipulate each layer.
On the right hand side of the canvas is your Layers Panel. You can see how many layers are in your SVG. In mine there are so many I can’t count.
- Click Ungroup.
Mine is grouped in more than one place, so if the text you want to change is still attached to the rest of the image, click Ungroup again till your text is ungrouped and free to move or delete.
- Replace text with new.
Now that the unwanted text is gone, replace it with the text you want. Remember to find the right font if you are matching fonts to use your Font Manager. It really helps me find matching fonts fast.
Once you have your SVG file edited like you want, Regroup the image to put it all back together.
Now is the time to size it so you can then cut the image for your project.
- You have just Edited an SVG File!
That wasn’t so hard, was it! Congratulations!!!
Now that you are done Editing your SVG file, go cut and apply to your surface.
Have a happy crafting day!
