Re: Problems with embroidering wider satin stitches

That happened to my friend when I was at the store. They had no idea what was going on.

Satin stitches can be just over 12mm wide before they become jump stitches, so it doesn't seem like the machine is treating them as jumps. When it stopped after cutting, was there a message? Was this a design from someone else, or did you create it in MBX? What are the settings in your machine for Jump cutting? There might be a bug in the machine software that strikes when certain combinations occur. If you can email me the design (jim@...) we can try it in our machine to see what happens. If it is a bug, I will submit it to Janome.
