It won't save it to the design file, but if you use the create notes function in Convert It, Mac, It will at least have the same name, and the basic information such as threads, stitch count, etc. You can edit that with your design notes, stabilizers, quirks, etc.

Re: Adding a note to design?

It's an interesting discussion with lots of possible implementations. We are evaluating ways to bring this into Essentials, but haven't settled on what exactly it should do and where the information would be stored.

Specifically, the Create Notes feature of Convert It, Mac or Studio which works at the browser level, takes information from the design and puts it in a text file, located next to the design. We could implement that in the Merge Designs window in Essentials which functions like a design browser.

However, there may also be the desire to store notes in the BE file itself, which also can be done. You can then "view/edit/print/Save .TXT file" those from within Essentials, probably using a dialog off the Utility menu.

A third possibility is to have a utility that actually populates PDF template. This gets tricky however, as a simple PDF viewer would be another program the size of Embrilliance, and Adobe really has that covered. It would be a shame to waste a year's worth of work to incorporate PDF into Essentials. So it would be saveable, but not viewable.

Any thoughts on these possibilities are welcome.

I would choose door #2. I like to think of the BE file as having all the basic building blocks for the design. I would probably use that function even though I have a database that contains every design plus any info I wish to include.

Not everyone has a Mac computer and not everyone uses Convert it Mac.
I would agree Door 2 being able to add/write and print notes in the working file may work the best.

this would be amazing....was it ever implemented? i have looked through the manual and online and this all i can find. I want to add notes so that particulars of a design project can be easily kept within the design file :)
