User Interface

Your embroidery software has a single workspace or ‘design window’ which you interact sing different tools. This allows you to modify embroidery designs using the built-in toolboxes. The user interface is designed to be user friendly, when you select a function, the tools for that function are readily available to you to utilise.


Toolboxes are like toolbars in that they contain software tools. However, each toolbox represents a typical scenario you will be engaged in, such as customize designs or multi-hooping a large design layout. Some tools may appear in more than one scenario. As such, toolboxes are organized more or less in order of common operations.

– Vector or bitmap artwork can be inserted, pasted or scanned into your embroidery software for use as digitizing templates or ‘backdrops’. The Artwork toolbox provides for importing electronic artwork into your embroidery software, editing it, and preparing it for automatic digitizing.
– The software will open artwork types: PNG, BMP, JPG, WMF, EMF, ESP


– Supports the automatic and semi-automatic digitizing of both bitmap images and vector drawings.
– The Click-to-Stitch tools provide everything necessary to digitize shapes in bitmap images automatically without using manual digitizing methods.

If your embroidery is too large or contains a number of designs spaced around an article, you can use the Multi-Hooping toolbox to split it into multiple hoopings. Each one contains an object or group of objects that can be stitched out in a single hooping. These can be stitched consecutively to form the whole design. They can be sent directly to machine or saved to file.

Stitch Player

The Stitch Player lets you simulate a design stitchout on screen. Use it to view stitching and color sequence in slow motion. Simulation can be started from any stitch. With larger designs, scroll automatically so that the area being stitched remains on screen.
