Chrome Users - Design Space Workaround


Those of you who use Chrome as your web browser (as well you should - IT RULES) will notice that Design Space is not currently working. That's because Google Chrome started rolling out an update ahead of schedule, so some plug-ins (such as Design Space) aren't working properly.

But never fear, dear crafters. Cricut has your back!

Here's how you can work around the Chrome incompatibility for the time being from the brains at Cricut:

This morning Google Chrome started rolling out a new version update. This new version from Google has dropped your Design Space plugin. (We know, it’s a pain!) Here are a few quick and easy steps to check your version and restore the plugin.

1. Open Google Chrome.
2. In the upper right corner, click on the menu icon (it looks like three horizontal bars).
3. Choose “About Google Chrome” from the drop-down menu.
4. Check your version.
a. If it is version 42.0.2311.90, continue with step 5.
b. If your version is lower than 42.0.2311.90, wait for the update to complete then move on to step 5. (Make sure to “allow” if your computer gives you a prompt. You may also need to refresh your browser to see the update.)
5. Copy and paste chrome://flags/#enable-npapi into your address bar.
6. You will see “Enable NPAPI” highlighted. Click “enable”.

7. Now you are ready to go back to Design Space. You will be prompted to reload your plugin.

Craft on, crafters!

Lisa is a gamer, crafter, fangirl, mother, wife and unabashed nerd who is pretty ridiculous and it's best you know that up front. When she's not binge watching Netflix or crafting into the wee hours of the night, you can find her spending a lot of her time on Pinterest and Twitter.
