Re: Removing Overlapping stitch - appliqué

It is easier in Enthusiast, but not difficult in just Essentials. Before buying, you can download the trial version and try it out. Or, as EastWitch2 said, wait for the next Essentials update. I would advise getting to know Essentials well before adding more to it. Too much new at once can be overwh...

Re: Removing Overlapping stitch - appliqué

I have done this before Enthusiast came out by using the stitch simulator and separating the satin stitches into pieces and then deleting the stitches behind the overlap in the object pane. I left the tack down stitches alone and let the fabric overlap. With enthusiast I just select and eliminate th...

Re: Deleting Fonts from alpha tricks

When you are mapping fonts, you are not doing anything with the fonts on your computer. The file created by Alpha Tricks when you map a font is stored elsewhere on your computer. You may delete all fonts from the pull down menu without disturbing your original fonts.

Re: sewing sequence object view

You have to make sure that you have not assigned the same color to adjacent steps. The pes file will combine like adjacent colors into a single step. I think that is what is happening to you. In the .be file, change to a slightly different shade of the colors you want if you have, for instance, two ...

Re: When design does not fit

There is an error in the latest version of the program which will be fixed in the next update. At least this is true in the Mac version. I contacted the company after the last update. They checked and verified the error and said that the fix is coming.

Re: Trial serial number

The trial does not require a serial number - that's only if you later purchase and want to enter. I'm sorry. I didn't notice that your previous post was about the trial. There is no serial number involved. Ignore the serial number box and click whatever button allows you to proceed. It will remind y...

Re: Saving to USB stick

I would try using another brand of USB, with a size of 2gb or less. Are you by any chance using a Mac? In that case, you have to use the menu item 'Save stitch file as' to keep from confusing the machine with mac invisible files.

Re: Saving to USB stick

If the design is too large for your largest hoop, it will not show. Also, some machines are very limited on how many designs can be displayed from a USB stick at one time. Try putting a design that is not showing on an empty USB stick and see if that makes a difference.

Re: Resizing designs

Check your minimum stitch setting in the advanced settings for stitch recalculation in preferences. In general, running stitches such as quilting stitches are not good candidates for resizing. Fill stitching works much better.
