Cricut Design Space…updates??

I just logged in and found some changes..  
…at a quick glance the first thing I noticed is the upload feature is combined so now jpegs and vectors all upload in the same place.. AND … you can now upload pattern fills!!! so I am assuming there is also now a fill feature? I will look see shortly.



The other thing I noticed is the grid.. the mat has an alignment grid, which hopefully came with a snap to or some other positioning aids ?? we shall see. I  wonder what else is new.. time to go explore with my Explore 🙂
