Re: 11000 thread holder

lmsoriginals1@sbcglobal.net <lmsoriginals1@...>
 

I too am using my 11000 thread holder. However, I am having a problem with the thread jumping out of the first of the threading path. What are you using as a thread guide to lead the thread from the top of the thread holder to the beginning of the thread path?

Hi, I did use the screws that were in back of the 12000 to support my 11000 thread holder without any problems. Did not have to get a larger size screw. What was on there worked just fine. I just screwed them in a little more after I attached the stand to make it sturdy. It doesn't take much to make me happy. Also went to my first class on creating my own stitches and loved it.

The only time I created a different hoop, I defined it's parameters and then named it and it worked just fine.  You should be able to do it too.  What you will discover is that when you are ready to save the stitch file, it will only save if you are using the suffix for the pfaff or whatever... In other words, it will not save as .jef if you have the user defined hoop designated..

I know this is a silly question, but here goes. Is it possible to create a new hoop for a larger design (approx. 14x14) that would be used on a Pfaff machine. Or can you only create a new hoop for the Janome machines? Thanks.

Re: MBX and design gallery

I never had Digitizer Pro, so this was a new install. Also, as I'm going through the wonderful instructional video by Trevor, and realized I didn't have those folders showing on the left side like on his screen, I discovered the "hide/show folders" button. DUH! What a difference that made. It's all so easy now!

I'm REALLY enjoying this software, even if my Corel is all messed up. I sent questions to both Janome and Corel about the issue, so I'll let you know what I find out.

Re: corel and MBX

Jim_Stutsman <jim@...>
 

If you installed MBX as an update "on top" of Digitizer Pro, and didn't check the Design Gallery box during installation, the shortcut on your desktop will be pointing to the old Design Gallery from Digitizer Pro. Run the MBX installer again and make sure the Design Gallery option is checked.

I guess the good news is that I never tried to uninstall corel essentials! I put the CD back in and did a "repair". Neither of the "corels" were working before I tried anything. that's when I tried putting the plug in into x5...at least it got rid of the message, and I thought I had "fixed" it, until I realized it still didn't work! I'll try doing a repair with my x5 CD, and if that doesn't work, will leave everything alone and contact janome.

This is the part of computer software stuff I don't like!

Any idea why nothing but black line boxes shows in designer gallery? Sorry for the headache emails! I sure appreciate your wisdom! Barbara Jean

That warning message is one of the more misleading that I've ever seen. The Corel plugin that MBX uses is very different from the standard Corel 5, and even if they were compatible (they aren't), you cannot simply copy files from one to the other. As in all Windows programs, there are myriad entries in the Registry that have to be updated through an installation process. But it gets much, much worse.

Uninstalling the Corel from MBX is NOT recommended because it is incomplete and once attempted, will not allow a successful installation to occur. I suspect that the attempt to uninstall damaged the existing Corel installation, which is why it will not open now. Again we're back to registry entries, and it's likely that some of those entries where shared between the existing Corel 5 and the Essentials installed with MBX. The Windows Registry is like a house of cards made of tissue paper between a fire and a fan. It takes only the slightest breeze to collapse it into a pile of burnt rubble.

I'm not at all optimistic on the possibility of recovery. I have been told by MBX support folks that reinstallation of MBX is not possible after an attempted uninstall of Corel Essentials. My advice would be to try to install Corel 5 from your original CD, even though it did not fully uninstall. That would rebuild the Registry entries. Be sure to install the latest of any updates that may be available for Corel 5.

If Digitizer MBX will still open, use it that way without the Corel plugin. The alternative would be to reinstall Windows 7, or if your system came with a recover CD, to use that. Either option will remove EVERYTHING from your computer, so it's essential that you back up all of your data first. Before you take this very radical step, I would suggest that you contact Janome Tech Support for advice. This may take several days, because they don't have a very big support staff, and they are often overwhelmed. If there is a non-destructive way to recover from this, they may be able to guide you step by step. To increase the probability of success in this, you should not do anything more to try to fix it yourself.

· Bobbin Thread Sensor Enhancement
· New Flat Hat Hoop for MC12000

There is no time frame given for these, and I'm sure they won't all come at the same time. We'll just have to try to be patient while we wait (Good luck with that!).

The Spam: Re: As I Promised

Jim_Stutsman <jim@...>
 

Spam comes in many varieties, and not all of them come with destructive payloads. Some just try to get you to a site where you might spend money. As long as you aren't getting feedback about emails you didn't send, all is probably well. Signs of infection are emails you didn't send going to addresses in your address book, a computer that is running a lot slower than usual, or mysterious pop-ups when you surf the web. You are probably ok, but changing passwords wouldn't hurt.

Thanks for any wisdom that you can shed of this for us.

Hi Vicky,
it is hard to explain, but when you google it you find lots of examples and you tube movies with demo's as well.
This is also a good article:
http://www.quiltingdaily.com/media/p/17250.aspx

The article in Quilting Arts actually speaks of Zen-doodling, but it is related to the Zentangle.

I also think an enlarged zentangle would be a nice starting point. (Quilting Arts has an issue where they do this for a quilt)

And adding the handstitches after the machine work gives it a final personal touch. So I will sign up for the course. The way the instructor talks to you is like you are sitting in a classroom with her so it is a good substitute for a real class which I can't attend as I live in Holland.
