How to I get cricut off line
If you have an Explore One, Explore Air, Explore Air2 or the Maker, the software program, Design Space is not yet advanced to work offline on your computer.
You can do some light editing if you are using an iPad..
Provocraft has promised offline functionality since the current program was released in 2012.
For humor - the CEO recently indicated on social media several times he had over 100 'software engineers' working on Design Space. which is more than NASA had to land on the moon doing everything manually. This is not a complex program
Unfortunately his social media posts are not too accurate. Recently he indicated Provocraft was a very small company and selling their machines at losses and could not afford a school program - while he was encouraging users to take their Cricut to School....keepign in mind you have to use their proprietary software and another graphic program to actually work with most medium to complex projects.
With over $240M in sales in 2018 - and still a private company - not so small and realistically they could never afford to sell that many machines at a loss for very long. Cheap plastic made in China with a 12 mo warranty and no repair or service offered - throw away product.
Like most issues with their software, they are not a software company and do not do well at all - unfortunately.

Ref. recocking the spring handle in your Arrow T 50 Stapler
1. secure the stapler in a vise. You need three hands to recock the handle spring.
2. Using a notched tack lifter hand tool, with one hand holding the handle so as to expose the spring, place the notched tool against the spring arm and force it to the rear. it will now be under tension.
3. Wiggle the handle into position so that you can quickly insert the clevis pin. Once secured, let go your handle that is now under tension. Replace clevis ring.

My Cricut Expression keeps turning on and off.
I would contact cricut because you may have a defective machine. I had an expression and cut one thing then it froze. We did the reset and that did not resolve the issue. Cricut had me send my machine back and they shipped a new one. Mind you they will put a charge on your credit card only to protect themselves. You just ship yours to them the way they tell you in the one you receive. Let me know if you do not have their contact number.
