Re: Horizon Link features

To answer your questions:

1. Once the design is open, either in the Viewing window or the Edit window, you can choose the Print option from the File menu. That's the round ball at the top left corner of the Horizon Link window.

2. If you open an MA hoop design (2 parts in 1 JEF file) in the largest hoop, it will combine the parts to a single design. If the design requires multiple JEF files to preserve the sequence of the layers, it's much more complex. We're going to need to do some heavy work-arounds for that. The biggest problem is that the "Design" button in the "Place" section of the toolbar will only show the designs that are built in or in your My Documents folder. You can't even open a file from the desktop. Hopefully this will be fixed soon!

2) If I am using a .jef design that I used on my 11000 that is a two-part design since I was moving the hoop upon completion of the first part, does the Horizon software combine the two designs into one? Again if I can print out the design and I see the center arrow placement, I will know if I now have one design.

Subject: [janome12000] Question

I just loaded the horizon link, on my computer. And I am playing with it. My first question is: How do I go about, changing my designs, that I already have, that are in pes and vip format, to the Jef format. And is there a way to do that, so I don't have to do one at a time?  And is that all I have to do, so the designs will work on my 12,000.

Re: Lorenne Font...

Chris Krause <nckrause@...>
 

Thanks for checking out the Lorenne Font situation for me, Jim (and the
digitizing suggestion, Missi). It IS pretty and I really hope they include
it when they update the MBX software, but I have lots of other lovely fonts
to play with in the new machine in the meantime (and lots in the other
lettering programs I have).

Back to my mini felt Christmas stockings. I love, love, love the size of
the new hoops. The entire felt square fits into the GR hoop, and I'll be
able to embroider three at once. I am a happy camper, with or without the
Lorenne font! ;)

The TTF version appears to be the same font, and could probably be used with
Digitizer MBX. It has the ability to created digitized lettering from
TrueType fonts. However this font has a lot of thin details, which often
don't work well. TrueType fonts are actually tiny computer programs that
tell the computer how to draw each letter. This does not always translate
well into stitches, especially when there are a lot of thin lines.

Hi Jean,
Since this is your first embroidery machine, I hope your dealer will or has given you a little lesson on how to stabilize your fabric, how to hoop the fabric and stabilizer properly, what needle and thread to use, what type of bobbin thread is good, how to attach the hoop, and how to start the machine.

Re: Free motion quilting feet - help!

joylaytor
 

Yes, you do have to make sure the free-motion feet are attached correctly. Unlike most other feet, there are two bars for each of the 3 plastic feet. Make sure to put the rear bar on first and then the front one. This will make the feet level instead of stick up. Then use the Free Quilting option on the quilt screen as Jim has mentioned. If necessary, you can adjust the height of the feet in the Set menu under Ordinary Sewing, FMQ Foot Height (3rd page). So far I have found that the feet adjust well on their own.

Re: Free motion quilting feet - help!

Jim_Stutsman <jim@...>
 

Diane encountered the same thing the first time she tried free motion. The solution is to let the machine do all the work. After attaching the foot, as Donna has explained, go to the Application screen (the key that looks like a T-shirt). Select Quilting, then Free Quilting. Choose one of the Q feet. The machine will then automatically set the presser foot height for you. As you go into the thicker areas it seems to auto-sense and adjust the height as you sew. Yet another reason this machine is so amazing!

Tonight I decided to have a play with the Free Motion Quilting feet and the Quilting programme however I wasn't entirely happy with the way the feet attached to the machine. Maybe I was doing something wrong but for example the large round one (QV? sorry I'm away from the machine at the moment) pointed up towards me at the front and the back was down so low it wouldn't allow the fabric to move. When I've used a similar style foot on a different make of machine it lay flat onto the fabric and floated on top of the quilt sandwich. I went into the settings and raised it as high as I could and then it worked - but was that the right thing to do? I was using 2 layers of quilting cotton and a piece of thin batting.
