Updating My Digital Studio
My Digital Studio includes periodic updates with enhancements and patches. It is important that you register the software to keep informed of any updates. We strongly recommend that you install updates as they become available. To update My Digital Studio, on the Help menu, click Check for Updates (you must be connected to the Internet).
12/3/2009 – Please note, once you download and install this update, your My Digital Studio software will display as “My Digital Studio 22.214.171.1241” in the About My Digital Studio screen under the Help menu. For details on what is included in this update please click here.
2/25/2010 – We have released an update to your My Digital Studio software; this update is version 1.0.2. If you have already updated to version 1.0.1, you will be informed of the new update the next time you launch your My Digital Studio software, or you can choose to Check for Updates under the Help menu to search for the 1.0.2 update.
However, if you have not yet updated to version 1.0.1 (announced December 3) then you should update to that version (follow the instructions here), after which your software will prompt you to restart. After restarting you can download the latest version (1.0.2) by choosing Check for Updates under the Help menu, as mentioned above. You must shut down your My Digital Studio software between downloading versions 1.0.1 and 1.0.2 and again after downloading version 1.0.2. Restarting the program enables the software to complete the update and allows for it to run as it should.
The version 1.0.2 update provides the addition of a Calendar Guide option under the View/Guides menu to show the bleed area for calendar creation. The bleed area shows the portion of the page that may be cut off or trimmed when your project is printed. The calendar guides show 1/2″ on the top and bottom of the page and 1/4″ on each side, no matter the calendar size or orientation.
The calendar bleed area will turn on by default when you open/use a calendar within My Digital Studio. You can also turn on your calendar guides by selecting Calendar Bleed Area under the View/Guides menu.
7/13/2010 – The version 1.0.4 update to My Digital Studio is now available. With this free update, not only will you get the latest My Digital Studio features and functionality, you also get all of the new colors (including digital card stock, ink colors and Patterns Designer Series Paper) from the recent color renovation! That’s a $50 value!
It is important that you have the most recent version of the My Digital Studio software prior to installing the color updates.
