Julia, I have Embird, Janome MBX Dew what Oro, and quite honestly Sew what pro does all that the Embird Editor plus true type font conversion. It can be used to split designs, change thread colours, rescale designs but costs less than Embird. The writer is helpful, its a nice no nonsense editor and very good.

I did the same thing and was successful. I used 3-hole paper in my printer so it was easy to save the guide in a binder. It takes a lot of paper! Benny

I also use Embird and I'm very happy with it.  I had Customizer 4D from HV first, then PE Design but really just wanted to be able t edit my designs and add lettering.  I really wasn't into Digitizing my own.  The upgrades for both those other software packages were about $500.00 and there was a new one every other year or so.  I really couldn't keep up and wasn't using the programs fully.  I went with Embird back in 2004 and have been very happy with it.  Upgrades are every couple of years, but only $20.00.  I do have the digitizing part, but still don't use it.  There are a couple of Yahoo groups for it that are  very helpful.


I got my 15000 a couple of months ago an I just recently converted all my files to .jef.  I did whole folders at a time so it was pretty quick and easy. 


I would recommend Embird

Printing Horizon Link Suite 15K

Today I was determined to print the "help" for this software.  First, open the software, click on EmbLink Tool, click on the ? upper right corner, click ONLY the purple books and you will automatically get all the subfolders.
At first I thought you had to print ea sub folder but no, all that info is included in the purple book folder. 

Then go back to the original pg for the software and do the same for "PatternCombo, Acutfil Tool, Stitch Composer.  The last couple I don't intend to do.  

Hope this helps someone,  I also tried to "save" but that can not be done. Wish Janome had done this differently.  

Maybe if we all contact them changes could be made,  Claire S.

I really think you are selling yourself short by not using the Digitizer MBX software.

So are you using this as your software package instead of the Janome MBX software? If so, why did you choose embird?

If you're interested in why someone else uses Embird, here's why I do. It
cost $20 - $30 to upgrade to a newer version and the programmers are very
good at listening to what we want in the program. Those experiencing
problems with it are the exceptions.


BTW, Embird also does a batch conversion.

I'be had it for years. It works well with any format or converting formats. I have a viking, a babylock and a janome embroidery machine. I had originally purchased viking software. It was very expensive and very complicated ( no dealer support) embirds upgrades are also very reasonable. Carolyn Keber from secrets of embroidery has cds you can buy with the tutorials for embird. I think there's a lot of them out there now

Not knowing what area you are in.  You might consider contacting Janome direct either by E-mail or phone early in the morning and tell them .  they may be able to help you.  I purchased my first Janome on line and was able to get support from my local dealer.

Can't always blame it on the customer. I purchased an expensive machine at the Houston Quilt Festival and the company sales rep (not a dealer) told me I could get training near my home even through it was 60 miles from the dealer selling the machines. I knew enough to clarify that with the dealers saleswoman who said "oh no, the free classes are only at our store".

Julia - I'm unfamiliar with SewWhatPro so can't offer an opinion on it.  But I have used Embird for years and years and love it.  I'm a new 15000 owner and have to customize my hoop sizes as they haven't upgraded the program yet for these new sizes (possibly the same for the 12000).  I wouldn't trade Embird for anything - it does everything I need it to do.

Buzz Xplore is good for conversion.  Can do group conversions instead of just one at a time.  Good way to keep your files organized too and see what your designs are.  Embird does a lot besides convert.  Have both and use them for different things.  With embird you can get an iconizer that will show pictures of your designs in windows explorer.  Love that.


Re: Sew-What Pro and Embird - Your comments please

Bea Rosier <beazoza@...>
 

Didn't you get digitizer MBX when you bought the machine?   You can do both of those things with that.  Very easily.

SewEzi Table

Sharon Moos
 

Is any one using the SewEzi table with the 12000? It shows the table is available for the 12K but I'm wondering if it's strong enough to hold the heavy 12000 and not shake when sewing.


Thanks.
