Cheryl.      Thanks so very much for all this information.    I will have to rethink and ponder this for a while.    I want to keep my brain cells working (LOL) but wondering if I really want to go to the expense and the time spent learning how to digitize.  I know it would give me a sense of accomplishment to do it but.........   again.   Many thanks.

I’ve had all the Digitizer Programs from Version Digitizer 10000, upgraded and all the version in-between to the very latest which is Digitizer V5.5.  It meant new dongles almost each time - the updates were free to fix “bugs” in the program or add something that was either forgotten or added to the Janome machine that corresponded to that version of software.  I would highly recommend that you try to at least upgrade to the Version 4 of the software as it will have bigger hoops to digitize larger designs and copy them to USB’s for use in an embroidery machine.  At Version 5 the software did a change and it was quite a surprise to me when I first loaded my program - it was almost like learning something altogether new.  I’ve gotten so that I can navigate in it but I wasn’t a very happy camper to begin with.  So what I’m trying to say is if you have a fairly new embroidery machine, you might want to get the new version and learn it instead of struggling with a program that is about 10 or more years old and doesn’t want to load onto your Windows 10 computer easily.  You will/may run into problems every time Windows does a major update and that is VERY frustrating.  If you have Janome embroidery machines it is the best program to use.  

Now if you are even thinking a little bit about digitizing, Janome has another program called Artistic Digitizer - it is not as expensive as Digitizer and if you haven’t digitized before now, you might want to consider that one.  Janome, in North America at least, seems to be moving in that direction.  Personally, I like Digitizer much more, but then it is familiar and Artistic seems quite foreign and difficult to move around to find “how” to do what I want, but that again is “learning”.  I’m 75 - not done wanting to learn, but I don’t really feel like taxing myself if the FUN is being lost in where the learning is happening.  Also right now Janome has Artistic Digitizer on a special where you can download it and use it for a limited time - you could try that.  I went down the “rabbit hole” to see if I could find the website, but didn’t.  Go to

Janome America sent the upgrade USB to dealers only, and provided the Horizon Link Suite upgrade by email when notified by the dealer of an update being done. In countries other than the US and Canada, the upgrade USB was included in the box of Quilt Maker optional accessories and it also contained the HLS update.

Thanks to Jim and Diane for the footbook app and also for GR hoop use.
Question to anyone,  when you received the upgrade to 15000 for quilt maker did the dealer give you the usb with it?  Was told by dealer they don't provide that.  However another group on Facebook said that my Horizon Link upgrade is provided on it.
Can anyone confirm this?  Should i try to contact Janome myself?

I’m glad that your family is doing OK, Jim and Diane. We are prepared for the cold here as we get WINTER every year in Saskatchewan. Only today and it is -19 C (-2.2F) and our furnace QUIT. I was feeling chilly as we were playing a board game with our grandson. Jim went down to check the furnace and realized it hadn’t started when I increase the temperature a few degrees above 20C. Our son had problems with his furnace so borrowed our space heaters that we use for the garage and a shed. We’ll have to get them back from him so we don’t freeze over night. We don’t want to pay overtime charges to call a repair man at night if we don’t absolutely need to. So you see, we can’t win them all.

Hope everyone’s weather changes for the better.

Re: inserting words

Kaye Lessard
 

You need to resequence the words to before the backing stitches-
If I remember select words then use the arrows in the objects propertybox at bottom - right side
To move part up or down

Dianne-

Just skip ahead in the stitching order on your machine, stitch out the lettering.  Then go back and do the backing for your project. 

I have found that anything I add to a design, stitches out after the initial design is finished.  So- I do this often.  It's easy to skip ahead and then go back.

You don't say which program you're using, nor what machine.
But, If you don't know how to move the words or objects in your program you can just travel through the design and only stitch the parts you want to, when you want to stitch them.

Unfortunately that version of Digitizer does not work with Windows 10. It’s not even compatible with Windows 8. There isn’t much you can do unless you have an old Windows computer.

Thanks for asking. Yes, we're fine. Our little neighborhood was built in two phases, back in 2005.

So we have had uninterrupted power. All of our 3 sons live within a few miles. The oldest is on a schedule of 30 minutes of power with one hour of blackout.

With the cold that's down to 2%. The rest comes mostly from plants fired by natural gas. However most people's homes are also built to use natural gas, and some of the gas pipelines have frozen, so they can't ramp up. We're keeping the thermostat low and lights off to minimize use, but it's very dire for a lot of people. So far 9 have died, mostly from carbon monoxide as they are trying to get heat in their homes. We've got food, LOTS of quilts, and enough food for at least a week. It hasn't been this cold in Texas in more than 70 years and there were no wind farms then and a lot less people. Once it's over there will likely be a lot of damage from frozen pipes.

Re: Digitizer Pro

Yes, it will work with windows 10.  Load Digitizer Pro on your computer. Do not open it.  Go to:  
https://www.janome.co.jp/e/e_downloads/software.html.  Download Digitizer Pro/MB Version 2.0K  and   Digitizer Pro/MB Version 2.0 Service Pack1.  
Be sure to read the update installation instructions.  You will also need to download a Windows 10 dongle driver for digitizer embroidery software.  I downloaded mine from:   
https://supportportal.thalesgroup.com/csm?sys_kb_id=61fb0ee1dbd2e78cfe0aff3dbf9619ab&id=kb_article_view&sysparm_rank=8&sysparm_tsqueryId=5b1f73701b122c10f2888739cd4bcbd7&sysparm_article=KB0018320.

My Digitizer Pro now opens on a Windows 10 computer.  I hope this works for the people who are in need of using DP with Windows 10.  If anyone has any questions, please feel free to email me.

Sandy in Il.

You do not need to buy a dongle.  The window 10 driver, which is free, is what you need to download.  I think I had to download something else to make the dongle work.  I am not at home at this time.  I am going to try to get digitizer pro on the laptop I am using at this time.  If I succeed, I will let you know just what you need to do.  It took me a lot of research to get the program and the dongle to work on windows 10.  I thought I had brought the programs I needed with me but I could not find them on my jump drives.  If I find them, I would gladly send them to you if you want to give me your email address.  I will be going home sometime in April and can send you the programs then if I do not find them before.
