I just picked up my acqufil software this afternoon.  I'm waiting for the DVD as well Pat, it looks pretty complicated to me....the old brain just needs a little hint and it will figure it out!

Hi,
I recently bought the Acufil software, but find I really don't need it, as I already have Art and Stitch and didn't realize (but have since learned) that I can do everything through AnS and use the Janome ext.
So, does anyone know if I can re-sell the Acufil software kit on line?

Hi,

I'm new here and don't have a Janome 12K but am already finding good information here about the machine.

I'm very interested in Stitch Creator because we can use our own computers to create stitches. Using my Intuos tablet to draw something or opening image files with the Horizon software installed on the computer makes the process sound so convenient.

I've read this group's threads about Stitch Creator and just needed to clear up some things -

Can we now use an iPad to do our drawing work?

Can I presume that I'd also be able to use my Windows 7 PC to create stitch files?

I'd like to be able to load the Horizon software on all my devices and use whichever is convenient and then also backup my stitch files on a thumb drive.

Re: Bridge stitches

janetpiekarski
 

Just to enlarge on that (no pun intended), if you want to add 5 stitches you can add one selection of 1 and one of 4 and if you wanted to add 10 stitches you can add 2 1's and 2 4's and so on. You can also lengthen the stitches (so they can be removed but then you could have used the spaces)

Here's what Diane told me about bridge stitches:

Bridge stitches 1-4 add 1, 2, 3 or 4 stitches in the center needle position.

Bridge stitches 5-8 add 1, 2, 3 or 4 stitches in the left needle position.

Bridge stitches 9-12 automatically start at the ending position of the previous decorative stitch. They add stitches as follows:
9 - 2 straight stitches
10 - 4 straight stitches
11 - 1 triple stitch
12 - 2 triple stitches

I used bridge stitch no. 5 and I added some stitches to make it a 9 mm
stitch.

It took me some time figuring out how to program this stitch
combination
in my Janome 12000 and I wonder why the manual doesn't give a step for

The directions Diane gave were much clearer, even if they were for
another machine.

But now I wonder what the difference is between all the bridge
stitches.
I can't find much info in the manual.
Actually, sometimes I wish there was Stitch-book app, like the
footbook.
Would that be possible (in the future, sometime, no pressure)

Re: Digitizer MBX

Wow! I had to print this post! LOL I will give it a try. Thank you Maggie

--- In janome12000@yahoogroups.com, maggie cooper <maggiecoops@...> wrote:

I missed your initial mail regarding MBX failing to launch, I have had my seven year old grandson as a house guest on holiday from Kuwait. I'd forgotten how  much time a seven year old takes up.
 
If and when MBX fails to launch there are a number of steps you need to take so here they are.
 
1; go to Start, All Programs
2; Locate the Janome folder, in the program list.
3; Click on the folder and a drop down menu appears.
4;Select Delete Recovery files and left click it
5;A pop up dialogue box appears, Purge Recover and Backup Directories.
6; Tick the small box on the lower left saying yes to the Delete Back Up files
7; Click the OK button. That empties the recovery and back up folders.
8; go to Start, All Programs, Janome Folder, click on it to access the drop down menu.
9; Scroll down to the command Revert and select it.
10;Another pop up dialogue box appears, Revert to Factory settings
11; Put a tick next to Default settings only then click OK.
12; Return to Start All Programs, Janome, the drop down folder, right mouse click 'Delete Recovery Files', from the pop up dialogue box select 'Send To' and another smaller pop up dialogue box will open, choose 'Desktop'(create shortcut)
Do the same for the Revert function. Use both these monthly, more frequently if you use XP.
 
Try to Launch MBX, if it still fails to launch, dig out your original installation disc or upgrade disc, another major cause of the program failing to launch is Corel X5 essentials.
Insert the disc but instead of letting it run, choose Explore, and locate the Corel exec, double left click it to launch it, it will detect the program is already installed, and offer 3 options
Modify, Repair, Uninstall. Select Repair. It will then run through identifying any corrupted programing and repair it
. When it has finished running, remove the disc and retry launching MBX. If it still fails to launch, find or download the latest  update for MBX, if you have the latest  update installed, re run the update, NOT the version on the install disc, again you will be offered 3 options, select 'Repair'
If MBX still fails to launch you need to examine your system resources, I don't know if you are using a 32 or 64 bit operating system , if you use XP or windows 7 32bit you have a less than 4 gigabyte of ram available  for programs, anti virus and malware programs, MBX requires a lot of elbow room in order to run sweetly.
So you need to see exactly how much elbow room it has.
1; Start, All Programs, Accessories, left click on it.
2; Scroll down the list to System Tools and left click it.
3;From the drop down menu select System Information. Give it time to open.
4; A double column window opens, maximise it so you see the entire display without scrolling down through it.
5;On the left a system summary list, on the right a list giving the name and type of OS, the processor, bios, etc.
6; look down the list for Total Physical memory, or if win 7 Installed Physical memory,  On my XP machine I have 4.096.00MB on my work station 24 GB.
7; Now look at 'Available Physical' memory, on my XP machine I have  2.14 GB, and no digitising software installed, in fact no Ram hungry software installed at all. On my workstation I have 20.7 GBavailable RAM .  My XP machine would have problems running MBX as it only has 2.14 GB available to spread it its wings. It could run it, but I'd need to keep the computer free from junk programs, photographs, and defrag it regularly and run the disk cleaner at least twice a week. My xp computer was an expensive machine, an Alienware Desktop, with a powerful graphics card, AMD chipset, which at the time of purchase was the best for cadware programs and MBX is a CAD based program. But Digitiser Pro MB was only barely able to run, and knowing MBX was a more powerful program, I opted for a Windows 7 workstation.
 
Jim wont love me for this, but my XP machine out specced every available MAC machine at the time and still does apart from the most expensive, and they run similar specs today, but my XP Alienware is now about 6 or maybe even more years old.
I never buy inexpensive PCs, I enjoy my various hobbies too much, and they require a decent investment to run the software associated with them. A cheap computer is exactly that.   MBX needs double or even treble the specifications quoted on the box. To assist it to run sweetly, don't store photos on your PC, make copies on a variety of digital storers like CD's (safer than DVD's as they still haven't arrived at a mutual agreement as to which system to opt for) Compact flash cards, USB flash drives, NAS boxes, they consume too much of your system resources.
Run disk cleaner regularly, defrag regularly, get rid of all your junk programs you never use, in short give your PC a spring clean and give MBX room to fly. Don't use invasive security programs like Norton or McCaffee, they rob priority from other programs and use a mammoth amount of system resources. If you have a Windows 7 computer use Microsofts own AV and Internet security programs they are every bit as good as either Nortons or Mcafee, are free, and with sensible computer usage will keep you free of nasties. use a decent malware detector like Malwarebytes and use it weekly if not daily.
 
If after running repairs to Corel and MBX, deleting the backup and recovery folder contents, cleaning up your hard drive, MBX still wont launch, ring  your regional Janome tech support. Do NOT uninstall MBX. It can be done but you need to find all the Corel x5 essentials entries in the hidden folders etc, or you wont get a clean install.

If you have the straight stitch plate on, the 12000 locks out all but straight stitches. It's moments like this when I think' "this machine is too smart for my own good!" But then I think maybe that's a good thing because it won't let me hurt it!

Re: Part #202149004 foot

Vikki Youngmeyer
 

That’s not completely true. Some dealers may fulfill an order from out of their territory, while others won’t. One exception is “used” machines. A shop can offer a cruise on which Janome machines will be used. After the cruise, those machines can be sold to anyone in any location as they are “used” and not new.

 

Also someone from “out of area” can be visiting your area, walk into your store and buy a machine. That machine can be sent to their home whether it’s in our out of the shop’s area, as the transaction occurred in a “brick and mortar” store and sales tax was appropriately collected.

Actually, that's not quite true, Dealers can't initiate machine sales out of their district but someone who calls the store from somewhere else unsolicited could get one. And parts are another story altogether-again unsolicited sales are okay.

You may live in Houston, TX but if your dealer won't buy a part for you, you can’t go online to a Janome dealer in Dallas or Texarkana and have them order a part for you. Now, outfits like Brubakers can somehow get around this I'm not sure why, but they can. Maybe Jim knows why, having been a Janome dealer in the past.
