Google Chrome Design Space Plugin Issues

Cricut Design Space had a scheduled update today but it seems like Design Space wasn’t the only one! After today’s update, crafters were still reporting being unable to use Design Space. The Cricut Team has emailed us the reason and the solution.

This morning Google Chrome has started rolling out a new update. This new update has dropped your Design Space plugin. (We know, that’s a bummer!) Here are the quick and easy steps to fix this.

  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.
    1. If it is version 42.0.2311.90, continue with step 5.
    2. 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 may be prompted to reinstall your plugin.

Happy crafting,
The Cricut Team
