MBX and corel update

gbmko
 

Dear Jim and any other experts! Because I had registered Corel essentials when that option came up at some point,(? or was it something else?) I got a free consult with corel. (I am still waiting to hear from janome). There had been an issue with graphics suite x5 and another Wilcom product, but that patch did not work when he tried it. He doesn't think I can have both programs on the same computer. So, he uninstalled my suite x5, and completely erased any traces of Corel, and uninstalled MBX. I then reinstalled, but don't think the emb to graphics is working. I've attached a screen shot of where it is highlighted when I first open the program, but how it is grayed out when I have a design selected. In case I am missing something, at this point shouldn't the pencil be highlighted so I can use it? Is there something else I should do? (I hope so...I hope I'm just missing a step I need to take!)

I'm waiting for another response back from "Miguel". I can find essentials on my computer...

So, until I find out something from corel or Janome, i would recomment NOT installing MBX if you have any other corelDRAW product already installed. Barbara Jean

Stitches #1 and #2on the first page of the Satin category are really for cording. If you use them as a satin stitch, they will sew for a bit jump to the left a bit then sew some more and jump again. There are tow stitches because one if for 2 cords and the other for 3. The actual "real" satin stitch is on page 2 of the Satin category and it's stitch # 25. It's as wide as it can be so you'd probably want to make it a bit narrower.

Re: reverse bobbin work

janetpiekarski
 

Don't use the FMQ bobbin for bobbin work because it actually has a tighter tension and you want a looser tension because the bobbin work thread is heavier than regular thread. You can use the regular bobbin threaded the normal way and if you're using a REALLY thick thread you can turn the little screw about 5 "minutes" looser. If you remember how much you loosened it, you can tighten it the same amount when you're done.

Has anyone tried reverse bobbin work (where the decorative thread is in the bobbin, the right side of the fabric is down in the hoop, you sew on the wrong side of the fabric) on the 12000?

I'm looking for suggestions on the tension. I tried just laying the bobbin thread on top of the bobbin, not using the either tension disc, and I was not pleased with the result. The decorative thread bunched up in some areas. I am using designs digitized for this type of stitching. While I do not want to mess with the tension screw in the bobbin case at all, has anyone changed the upper thread tension? Yes I can experiment on my own but perhaps one of you has the secret and I don't have to reinvent the wheel.

I have not tried it yet. But what I would like to know is where did you get the designs. I am using a MC11000 machine.

Sorry to hear you are under the weather. I spent the greater part of the day at the hospital with my husband as I will tomorrow. I can't find to get to machine. I am sure Janome will make it right for you. Judyjanome

My 12000 is on its way back to Janome. My dealer tried the machine on Saturday and it did exactly what I said it would do. I guess it will be a couple of days before I hear anything.

I am crook just now, have a throat infection so spent most of the day in bed.......


Re: MBX

You can create the hoop but MBX will not automatically split the design.   Creating a 200 X 360 hoop and saving each part as a vp3 file would work better.  That way you could load them into you big hoop at the machine and line them up there.

I know this is a silly question, but here goes. Is it possible to create a new hoop for a larger design (approx. 14x14) that would be used on a Pfaff machine. Or can you only create a new hoop for the Janome machines? Thanks.


Re: 11000 thread holder

lmsoriginals1@sbcglobal.net <lmsoriginals1@...>
 

I too am using my 11000 thread holder. However, I am having a problem with the thread jumping out of the first of the threading path. What are you using as a thread guide to lead the thread from the top of the thread holder to the beginning of the thread path?

Hi, I did use the screws that were in back of the 12000 to support my 11000 thread holder without any problems. Did not have to get a larger size screw. What was on there worked just fine. I just screwed them in a little more after I attached the stand to make it sturdy. It doesn't take much to make me happy. Also went to my first class on creating my own stitches and loved it.

Re: MBX

Bea Rosier <bearosier@...>
 

The only time I created a different hoop, I defined it's parameters and then named it and it worked just fine.  You should be able to do it too.  What you will discover is that when you are ready to save the stitch file, it will only save if you are using the suffix for the pfaff or whatever... In other words, it will not save as .jef if you have the user defined hoop designated..

Re: MBX and design gallery

I never had Digitizer Pro, so this was a new install. Also, as I'm going through the wonderful instructional video by Trevor, and realized I didn't have those folders showing on the left side like on his screen, I discovered the "hide/show folders" button. DUH! What a difference that made. It's all so easy now!

I'm REALLY enjoying this software, even if my Corel is all messed up. I sent questions to both Janome and Corel about the issue, so I'll let you know what I find out.

Re: corel and MBX

Jim_Stutsman <jim@...>
 

If you installed MBX as an update "on top" of Digitizer Pro, and didn't check the Design Gallery box during installation, the shortcut on your desktop will be pointing to the old Design Gallery from Digitizer Pro. Run the MBX installer again and make sure the Design Gallery option is checked.

I guess the good news is that I never tried to uninstall corel essentials! I put the CD back in and did a "repair". Neither of the "corels" were working before I tried anything. that's when I tried putting the plug in into x5...at least it got rid of the message, and I thought I had "fixed" it, until I realized it still didn't work! I'll try doing a repair with my x5 CD, and if that doesn't work, will leave everything alone and contact janome.

This is the part of computer software stuff I don't like!

Any idea why nothing but black line boxes shows in designer gallery? Sorry for the headache emails! I sure appreciate your wisdom! Barbara Jean
