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.
– View design information – Select stitch-out fabric from built-in fabric list – Change background and display colours – Adjust stitch spacing – Able to select thread chart from numerous built-in thread brand colour charts – Change colours within existing embroidery design Insert additional designs to existing design
|Lettering and Monogramming||
– Create embroidery lettering using the variety of built-in embroidery fonts and TrueType fonts
– 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.
– Supports the automatic and semi-automatic digitizing of both bitmap images and vector drawings.
Able to making general changes to a design, such as changing the colours, change fill type, resizing, rotating.
– Create design layouts up to 3m x 3m which can be printed out and used for design placement on your fabric
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.
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.
