On the 12000 you're mostly limited to the amount of stitches in a design, which is 100,000.

In the original JEF format it was 78. This coincides with the number of thread colors in the original Janome thread boxes 1, 2, and 3. I believe the JPX format increased the number to 100, maybe even 200. It's been a number of years since I looked at that, and I have slept since then.

You need to uninstall not delete. You can do it before you get the download.

12000 - thread numbers/

Joyce Daniel
 

what is the max number of thread colors I can have w a design to embroider on the 12000?


Re: Which foot is this?

Lorrie Gauthier
 

Thank you everyone. My first Janome was 6000 in 1983. That must be what I had it from. I loved that machine. So I have the border guide feet for both my 3160 and my 15000 so I won’t need this then? 

since we are in full lockdown here I’ve been finding all kinds of interesting things that I forgot I had. 

Stay safe and happy.

Thanks to all that offered help. I'm just confused on one thing. Do I just down load the update or (like embird)  delete prior version then download update.

thanks

I was curious .... seems the markings are for placement when combining what they call “craft Stitches”.   Learn something everyday ...... hopefully .... hugs heather


Re: Which foot is this?

Craft Foot K was included with the Memory Craft 6000. It is used with decorative stitches, much like the satin stitch feet F and F2. The difference is that K has a raised area on one side. The idea is that after sewing a row of decorative stitches, you do a second row with the first row going under that raised area. Many years ago we did a foot class at the store and ordered the remaining stock of these from Janome for the class. When we closed I intended to put that foot in FootBook, but we no longer had one. I don't think they ever made it again, and the Border Guide Foot is a better option.

At first look I think it’s a satin stitch foot.  Then I googled Janome K foot and it came up as that, satin stitch.  It’s used for both satin and many decorative stitches.

Hi
If you go in the software to help/ check for updates and it shows no updates but there is one it is best to go to the global page and use the download there. Once you get to the global page go to downloads/software. First on the list is what the update contains and a link to all the videos on YouTube. If you scroll down the list you are looking for Artistic Digitizer  Installation for those without a dvd drive. At the bottom of that are the instructions and the links to download. There are 4 different ones- pc full and jr and MAC full and jr. Just pick the one you need. When you do the update it is best to close your software and log out of the software key. Then uninstall the software.  Then begin the process to reinstall from the download. 
 
The manual gets updated in the process too. So if you moved it to your iPad for ease of use you would need to remove and replace it. 
 
If you have any issues contact Janome tech support -tech_support@...
 
There are some really nice changes to the software too. 
 
There are 2 fb groups for those interested: one is Janome Artistic Digitizer run by Janome and I’m the admin. I do 2 live presentations a week and all previous videos are saved to the page. This year I’m offering 2 different programs: AD Skill Builder  - a back to basics program and AD Create It- part learning/part project. To see the videos live or saved to the page you just need to join. The developer posts videos to the page and at the end of the month those are uploaded to the YouTube page and into the software. They do monitor the page abs answers questions.  I offer a quick tip weekly. We have a very active group of over 4K. 
The other page is Artistic  Digitizer Help Group run by Valora Hammond. We do cross post and share info. 
It’s best to join both then you won’t miss a thing. 
 
And just a short story here. Back when we had the Wades group I attended many of their events - this was before I worked for Janome. One event in VA Jim and Diane came - I believe we were at Jim Bowers shop. They offered a class on mbx with Jim as instructor.  Not sure will remember this but he has the same humor as my dh(software engineer). During the class I would be the only one who laughed at your jokes. Maybe I was the only one who got them. Anyway you’d look up at me when I did. Probably surprised!  The year I joined Janome was the year you and Diane retired. I was so excited to be with Janome and have a possibility to work with the 2 of you but oh no!!  
 
Retirement is fun too and you still support us. Which I so appreciate all that the 2 of you do. 
Who knew from that early class I’d be the one teaching or working for Janome.  I never thought it. 😊

The answer to your question is much like the answer to the old question (and if you know what I'm referring to, you're officially old!) "How many licks does it take to get to the center of a Tootsie Roll Pop?" It depends. I started the list with limited moderation, going to unmoderated after a certain number of posts. That's probably what you're familiar with. A few months in a post came through that linked to malware, from someone who was off moderation. Her computer was infected, and the infection sent the post using her member information. This created problems for several other members, and at that point I put the list on moderation. I definitely don't like it that way, and I probably spend more than half an hour every day reviewing and allowing posts. Even when traveling (Remember when you could do that?) I responded to every notification from Groups.io to review and clear posts. Several times throughout the day I stop what I'm doing to review new posts. I've probably deleted less than a dozen with malware over the years. More common has been rejecting posts that are abusive, or flame-war inspiring, as well as attempts to use the list for free advertising. You don't come here for that. The downside of this is that sometimes it takes a while for a post to appear after you've sent it. Try as I might, my body insists on sleep, and sometimes I may have periods where I don't have access to a computer, such as when I'm driving.

I would love to drop moderation and just let the chips fall. Unfortunately the malware situation is worse than ever now. It's not limited to email either. Over the course of a week I have received at least a dozen phone calls advising me:

·         The warranty on my 13 year old car is expiring. I need to enroll now to avoid costly repair charges.

·         The "security company" I use for my computer has gone out of business. I need to call now to get a refund.

·         A caller ID of "Doctors Office" wants to update me on COVID-19. Call now.


The result is that I never answer any call that consists of only an area code and a number. I know what they wanted based on transcripts of the voice mail. And this is after signing up for every possible service to avoid annoying calls.

So for now, I'll keep on moderating to keep the list a free and safe place to exchange information. The price of membership is that sometimes it may take a while for a post to appear after you've made it. Differences in option settings may cause some things to appear in immediate posts that don't get into the daily digest, but that's beyond my control. And sometimes I do edit a post if it is replying to a prior post and includes every response in the thread. In the case of these huge posts I will usually trim it so that only the one being replied to is included. This is also the case when someone uses the "Reply" function to start a completely new thread with a new question. I may not always catch this, but I do try.

In summary - think of this list as a neighborhood, and me as Mr. Rogers. (If you don't know who Mr. Rogers is, ask your mother!)

Re: 2Stitch Organizer (free program)

Agreed!  From time to time, however, I use the dst format.  I think some designer's programs don't do a perfect job somehow when they convert their native files to the stitch formats.  If things don't work well when I do a practice, I try the dst and it often is perfect.  I usually don't care about the colors so that's not been a problem for me.  I found this out when I purchased designs from a popular Australian digitizer.  When she was the only one digitizing, her results were wonderful.  Then she got discovered and began spewing out designs very quickly with friends and family doing some digitizing.  These designs often lacked things like removal of overlapping stitches and often didn't stitch out properly.  They would then re-release the files after they fixed them.  I no longer order from them, although I do like their designs but discovered dst this way and ended up buying Hatch so that I could have some way to fix things myself.  As you would expect, I've not been overly successful in this regard BUT I certainly have learned a lot since then.
Also, some digitizers are not aware of the orientation of the GR hoop.  I have used the free Wilcom program before I bought Hatch to fix this.  The Wilcom program (at that time, not sure now) would not open the jef version but it would open the dst.  I could then turn the design and save it as jef (or maybe it saved at jef+?) and all was well.

Re: Jef+ & files conversation

Cheryl Paul
 

Faviola,

Thank you for the video. That information about the JEF+ is great. Jim had explained something about this years, and years ago, about there being picture information within the design or something that the sewing machine needed but that we didn’t. I can’t remember what Customizer 11000 did, but it may have handled the elements in the same way as Horizon Link Suite (and the similar program for the S9, 12000, etc.) handles them. I did now that JPX was JEF and the only logic I can put to that is that our hoops are larger and that there needs to be something in programming that will allow for that.

Again, Thank you for the the great video.

Re: 2Stitch Organizer (free program)

I know that all these “new” formats exist, but JEF is still the go to format. The new machines save to JPX and I don’t fool with that, but if you were to buy a design from a website, ONLY get the JEF format as it is truly a design that will work. However, you still have to pay attention to the size of the design for the hoop you intend to use, as you can still only use a design that will work for the size hoops that fit your embroidery machine.

The new formats seem to have appeared as the hoops have gotten larger. JEF came about when the Janome MC10000 was launched and digitizing started to really take off in the domestic market. The 10000 had a hoop that was about twice as big as the 9000, and the computer part became radically different. Then the 11000 came out in 2005 and again a bigger hoop, and also more processing of colour, stitch count and much more on the sewing machine, so the JEF+ allowed that information that really is only applicable to the sewing machine. It isn’t part of digitizing as the software looks after all that stuff without that little + part, but the machine needs it. That + has created great confusion ever since. I’m not even sure that other software’s besides Janome’s can make a JPX file that would be a true design. You know how when you look at a PES or a VP3 that the colours aren’t true and not even the same from design to design, even though the picture is the same. That’s because the program used to write the original design has been changed into a stitch format and is broken up for an embroidery machine to read. All software have a specific format to save to and in Digitizer it used to be JAN, but now is EMB, in Floriani it is WAF, in Janome’s Artistic Digitizer it is DRAW, and the list goes on, those files are the ones digitizers use to build on, to create more in the design or change the design. When you purchase a design you don’t get that “native” format, but only a stitch file - that is the file that the digitizer keeps as they really don’t want us messing around with what they’ve created. Now you all know that we like to individualize designs from time to time or to add lettering to personalize what we stitch out.

Re: Janome recommendation

valora hammond
 

You might not have put it in the right folder that the machine first looks at for the design. Use the “go up” arrow (right angle arrow). This will look at the whole usb.  Also don’t forget to turn the page. If you have other designs on the usb the designs are separated by hoop size so there might be multiple pages with Judy one or two designs on them.

Mary-

The most common reason for this is that the design (on your computer) is not rotated so that it will fit the orientation of the hoop you have chosed.  Turn the design 90degrees, save it to the USB and see if it shows up then.  If even 1 stitch is outside the embroidery "stitch field" of the hoop you want to use, the design will not show up for your to pick and be able to stitch - but it will still show up when you look at the file on your computer.
