Mac Users Cricut Design Space Google Chrome Fix

The Cricut Support team released this email for Mac users using Google Chrome as their browser. The update removed the plugin required for the Cricut Design Space to work. Their email included the necessary instructions to fix it.

Crafting Friends,

Google Chrome has a new version update for Mac users. 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 (three horizontal bars).
    3. Choose “About Google Chrome” from the drop-down menu.
    4. Check your version.
      1. If it is version 43.0.2357.130, continue with step 5.
      2. If your version is lower than 43.0.2357.130, wait for the update to complete then move on to step 5. (Make sure to click “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.”


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

Happy crafting,

The Cricut Team

The Cricut Team is aware of the plan to remove support for this plug-in in the future and has let us know not to worry. They are working on an update!
