Artistic digitiser language settings

Ruthkhd@...
 

I am thinking of purchasing Artistic Digitiser and because I live in France will need to buy through a retailer here, this may be a silly question but will the software be in French or English? Can the language settings be changed? Whilst my language skills are improving day by day at the moment more ‘technical’ things such as software are easier in my first language.


Workbook for Janome S9

Mary Mills
 

Hi, would anyone know if the workbook that is suitable for the Janome 15000 be suitable for the S9?   I'm told the S9 is a scaled down version of the 15000.   Regards, Mary

You can send wirelessly from the software to the 15000, though it is one at a time like the cable I am usually only working with one design. It is quick and I can second a second or third design rather quickly.  They all go to the saved designs on the machine  When I've needed to send multiples designs I can also open horizon link suite, file manager and navigate to my folder of designs and send multiples that way. 

If you have the software have you had a chance to watch any of the built in videos? There are over 60 videos built into the program and the developer adds more each month. Many have found those very useful in getting started. 

A few of the favorite features are PaintStitch, create floral and auto digitize. 

I know Facebook isn't for everyone but we've built a nice community there. There are live tutorials weekly and there have been Saturday classes where you can work along with the educator. Many are finding great success with the program through the interaction with the FB page. There are a range of users from those who have never used software to very experienced users some who have used other software but now prefer AD.  It's quite exciting to see what they are all accomplishing. 

If anyone would like to join the group just to see what's going on you are more than welcome.

Happy creating

The update to V3.0 was sent out from Janome when the Dealer notified them that you purchased the upgrade to the machine.
If you purchased the "Quiltmaker" edition of the machine then your HLS installation CD is the V3.0

Most PC technicians would assume that the V3.0 update would also include what's in V1.1, and would like try to install that by itself. Janome updates work differently, and if the V3 update does not find V1.1 or 1.2 it might ask for a non-existent activation code. If that's not the case you may need to talk to Janome Tech Support.

I have the 15000 connected wirelessly to my PC (Win 8).  We had to get a new router to increase speed for our computers.  The PC will not connect to the new router. It shows that the new network exists but does not give me choice to connect--only message is 'disconnect'.  So I have no internet.  The PC is now in the hands of a technician to update to Win 10, thinking that Win 8 is not compatible with new router.  He told me that when he updates to Win 10 it will clear everything off the hard drive and I will have to reinstall Horizon Link Suite.  I have backed up all my designs to thumb drives and tested them on my 15000 and they are all there. 

 In researching re-installing HLS he gets a message that an activation code is needed.  Where do I get an activation code?  Since I have no internet to the PC he will have to install HLS V1, then update to V3.0.  This PC is a dedicated computer for embroidery only and is the only PC we have.  Our other computers are MACs and the new network connected to them immediately.  

Any suggestions as to how to install HLS once update to Win 10 would be appreciated.  
Thank you,

Thanks, I was hoping I could use the accuflex foot

Pauline, all the snap on feet should be interchangeable with the 12000. However, the Accuflex foot of the 12000 will not work with the S5. The S5 uses 202133005 Convertible Even Feed Foot instead.

Ah, Pictograph stitches in the Ordinary Sewing Mode....some can be adjusted smaller, but that could distort the finished stitch. For example, Pictograph Stitch #1 default is set to 9mm width and 2.5 stitch length, which are the maximums allowable. The machine limitation is 9mm for regular sewing so that will be the widest/tallest for all of those stitches.

I have a 12000 and a spline 5. Both are 9mm. Are the very interchangeable? This would be wonderful need of so.

Foot interchangeability with my MC12000 was a big selling point for me when buying the S7. Everything is interchangeable. I use the Acufeed Flex with the 1/4" foot a lot, and not just in quilting. I get perfectly even edges at the end of a seam when piecing, and it works great when sewing on bindings because I don't have to pin, just keep quilt edges and binding butted up to the flange. I can move the needle position quite a bit while in the Patchwork app if I want a wider seam than 1/4".
It's shown here at about 4:15. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=30U4rCHmT-s

Aren't the pictographs the redwork designs, such as a dog, etc.  They are shown in the manual for the 15K also. Claire S.

Re: Artistic Digitizer October 2020 free trial - Number of designs to send to machine

I don’t think you understand about designs in your machine’s memory. The machine cannot handle many more designs than it already has built in. The memory is quite small. You want to use a USB if you want to use many designs or have them accessible to you easily. I only have in the memory of my machine what I might be using on a ONE time basis and then forget to delete it - ie: going to a class where the instructor loads the design from his/her USB for us to do the class project.

I have several digitizing programs and they only allow ONE design at a time to be sent to the embroidery machine - that is all that is really necessary.

A digitizing program like Artistic's main function isn't about transferring designs, it's about creating digitized embroidery. Transferring files to a machine is limited in the program because when a design has been digitized it can then be sent to the machine to stitch it out to test it for further fine tuning or for stitching "the real deal".  A digitizing program isn't really meant to be used as a mass transfer system. That can easily be done using the computers File Explorer function.

Thanks for the info.

Now I can put that issue to rest. Good thing program was free because other that lettering, I doubt I will ever use it due to being only able to send one design at a time.

That's a lot of money for a program that does not measure up.

I can put the designs on a jump drive a lot faster than sending them one at a time.

Can you clarify what you mean by pictograph, eg the image shown on the screen of the 14000, or the image on your computer screen?

Hi can a pictograph be enlarged on the 1400?

Thanks in advance

I don't have facebook. My burning question is: How do you send multiple designs at a time through a direct link cable (computer directly to machine). Nothing in videos, google search Janome website or help in program or manual.  Embird is user friendly. Customizer was user friendly. Artisitc Digitizer not so much.

man-jongg,

I don't think you can send more than one design at a time to your embroidery machine.  I am very new to Artistic Digitizer and haven't really done anything with it as of yet, but I'm familiar with many others and they only allow one design at a time to go to the machine.  The processor in the sewing/emboidery machine couldn't handle that many things at one time.  You can however, go into edit mode on the embroidery machine and import more than one design, ONE at a time and embroider as one item on your fabric.

Hi,

I went into the software and looked across the top.  There is a tab on my machine that says to MC15000, I tried to change the machine to another, but it would not but that is my machine.  So it is 2 icons to the left of the Help icon. Clicking on it you can choose that option.  I added a document showing it on my Artistic Software.

Email me if I can try and help you further.
