Re: Horizon Link Software - Microsoft Surface Pro4

I have a student who owns a Janome 9900 machine and a Surface Pro. She was able to load the equivalent of Horizon Link which is AcuTools onto her Surface Pro. It does run but with some difficulties. For example one thing it does is that the screen will not show the program full size like it does on a regular windows computer and is therefore hard to use.
My explanation for why Janome has Windows programs and IPad apps is to attempt to meet the needs of all users.

I bought a new PC last year, and it doesn’t have a CD/DVD drive installed.  I bought a very cheap external drive which just plugs into a USB Port. My HL and Janome V5 programs are on disc when I tried to copy to a USB drive they wouldn’t load, may have been something I was doing, but could have been a security issue about being copied and loaded.  My drive cost less than 20 GBP.  I was able to load them without a problem once it was installed

If you have a computer that does have a CD drive all you need to do is copy everything from the CD to a USB stick. Then you can plug the USB stick into your Surface and run the Setup program.

I totally agree with the bobbin issue. I wish I could remember how many times mine has been into the shop over this issue

My biggest problem with the 15000 is the sensitivity in the bobbin case. Doesn't take much to jam the thread.
Re software, I do not use the Horizon stuff.
Re apps, I took a class when I first got the machine and was so frustrated with the instruction and the quality of designs that I discontinued.
However, not being an Apple user, I'm learning to use the IPAD and really like the  My 15000 app.

Re: quilting on my 12000

When I did this, I could see that the GR hoop magnets wouldn't hold the quilt sandwich, even as thin as it was. That was when I tried the ASQ22 magnets and they did clip over it all and stayed. And yes, even those magnets didn't want to go over seams so I made sure to avoid them.

Re: 15000 tension help

Jim Stutsman
 

If you are using the yellow dot bobbin case, switch to the red dot (standard) case. You don't need the extra tension. If you are already using the red dot case, adjust the needle tension to be a little higher. When properly adjusted, you will see about 1/3 top thread on each side of a strip of 1/3 bobbin thread when viewing the back of the embroidery.

Horizon Link is capable of running on a Windows tablet, such as the Surface, but NOT on an iPad. However you cannot download Horizon Link. It comes with the machine on a CD.

The limit is 200,000 stitches.

Just a thought on your issue with importing from Dropbox into AcuDesign.... Are your design files in the expected folder structure?  I can only see files located under this folder path:   Apps -> Artistic -> design folders and files.  If there’s a place to change that expected path I haven’t found it.


Stitch count limit on Mc15000

Diane
 

Is there a stitch count limit on the MC15000 and if so, what is it?  I've looked at or downloaded designs that warn me that the design exceeds 64,000 stitches.

Thanks,

Horizon Link Software - Microsoft Surface Pro4

Does anyone know if I can download the Horizon Link software to my Microsoft Surface Pro4?  Or can you only download it to an Ipad.  

If I can, where would I find the app?

Thanks so much!

Re: quilting on my 12000

Thanks, I do have the ASQ22 hoop, but it was too small for the design I chose. Maybe this machine was not really meant for quilting a crib or larger size quilt. I think it is where seams meet on the quilt top that the magnets have the most trouble staying on. I mentioned it could be somewhat entertaining when they pop off suddenly. I have actually had to hunt for a couple of them.
