* Track the threads you have in the “My Threads” collection

* Track the threads you need in the “Shopping List” collection

* Find threads with a particular thread number, including partial numbers

* Find threads that match your chosen color

* Find threads that match any color using the camera on your device or a previously made photo

* Instantly create a chart to convert any brand and type of thread to a matching color in any other brand and type

* Convert a list of thread colors, such as that often provided with embroidery designs, to any brand and type

Additional features include:

* Detailed explanation of each menu item with a single tap of a button

* Automatic updating of the library as new threads are added

We submitted the app for review before the videos were ready, anticipating that it would take a long time to be processed with the impending release of iOS 13 so near. Surprise! It was approved in only 2 days. The videos are coming together, and will be integrated into the Q & A section of the app automatically once they are uploaded. This should happen by the end of the week.

Adding apps to activities

Jill Olson
 

I tried to send a drawing from Accusketch to Accuedit but none of my sewing apps are listed in the activities. I updated them all last night. I am using my iPad. 


Re: Announcing ThreadBook

This sounds really neat and I am definitely going to get it.  However, I do have a question.  I am probably going to upgrade to a  new iPad right before I retire next year.  If I do all the setups of my threads, will it carry it over to the new iPad? Or will I have do some type of data transfer function?

Thanks,
Pixey

Is your design a horizontal one that needs to be made vertical to fit in the hoop? I messed w this issue for a long time w a design before figuring this out. Only after I changed the direction would it load to my machine.

Re: sending design from ipad to janome 15000

I go to drop box, find a design, click on the link in the right side of the screen, then my upload page comes up, and I select accu design, and save the file there. I haven’t created more files there, and just work with the ‘imported’ there.  Good luck.

Re: sending design from ipad to janome 15000

Jim Stutsman
 

Without knowing what the message says, it's pretty much impossible to say why it's not working. The most common reason for designs not to open on the machine is that it is too large for the specified hoop. AcuDesign should not allow that, so it could be something else. You might try saving the design to Dropbox or iCloud, and then opening it in Horizon Link Suite. That might provide a useful diagnostic. If you have a phone that can record video you might try recording the screen as you send the design. Then you can step through the recording frame by frame and maybe see what the message is saying. I suspect it may not be useful, but you never know. If you have a lot of designs in the machine, maybe the new one requires more storage than is available. It may also have more than 200,000 stitches, though again AcuDesign should not be allowing that.


sending design from ipad to janome 15000

Susan Pinter
 

A design I created in Acudesign will not go to my machine when I try to send it.  I tried with a different older design that I had used before and it did go to my machine.  An error message appears on the machine screen when I try to send the new design but it is on the screen so briefly that I can not read it.  What might I need to do to get this new design to go to the machine?
Thank you so much.

Re: wondering....need some HELP please

Re: OMF format

The only way that format might open is if you have the software that reads it. I know that Digitizer, Hatch or any embroidery software that I know of, will NOT open that file. What I found on the internet is that this is an audio file, so you’d need to use it to listen not see the file. I’m not sure that this could even be converted to a picture file. You need to find a JEG, PNG, BMP or some other file that is a “picture”. However, if you are buying a design or getting a free one, look for the format that your embroidery machine uses. Janome uses JEF, Brother and Babylock - PES, and so on - there are several to choose from. If you have someone digitize a design you can ask them to save it in the format your machine uses.

For cutting machines, you need better “pictures”. I use SVG (scalable vector images) as that is what my Artistic Edge software uses. Again this might be specific to the machine you have, but I know that Brother Scan and Cut also uses SVG files, but I can’t see that Janome’s Digitizer V5.5 does, but as I’ve just purchased this, I can’t be sure as I haven’t had time to explore that yet.

I’m just suggesting that you purchase the file format that you need for you specific sewing, embroidery or cutting needs and try to stay away from just downloading because you “think” it will work. There is always something on the internet that will fit your needs, but it might not be “free”.
