Re: Colour changes?

Thanks Jim, I thought that might be the case. Dang eh? I had the original three boxes of colours. And the metallics. They were really nice threads. I’m 

So I have to split the design? Stupid question- can i do that in MBX 4.5? I just got it running on my MacBook Air on my VMware virtual machine. I haven’t done anything with it yet except open it and poke around a tiny bit.

Thanks so much for your in-depth PDF on making the switch. I am now cleaning off my windows laptop and going to sell it.

Re: Colour changes?

It has the capacity for 78 color changes. There are 78 colors in the Janome thread palette. Long time Janome users will remember box 1, and later 2 & 3, of the original Janome thread. Box 1 also had 3 spools of bobbin thread. I guess the design engineers assumed no one would ever use the same color in two different color changes.

Colour changes?

I've done a search on the web and in these messages and I see that the 15000 has a 200,000 stitch limit. I cannot find out how many colour/color changes it can handle.

I'm sure it's right in front of my face but I cannot see it even with my bifocals on. Help please.

Go to page 32 in your 15000 it tells you which ones are your stretch stitches.

Subject: [onlinesewing-janome] Janome 15000 Creative stitches

I wanted to hem a knit top the other day and was looking for a specialty stretch stitch.  I know a couple of the usual ones but wanted to see if there was anything new on the machine.  I went to my Janome 15000 book and there was no catagory listed for stretch stitches.  Some stitches are mentions here and there but some are not.  Shouldn't there be a page that lists all the stitches, the name of the stitch and what it is designed for?  Am I missing something?

I look forward to your updates each year re: Apple.  You always inform and I appreciate it.  I've also been following Marques Brownlee and think you'd like this video.  (If you don't post this that's okay as I don't remember what your rules are for links.)

Ha!  Now we’ll get goofy corrections even faster. 

Some of the other things you mentioned do sound good, though.

Auto-correct has been the source of many hilarious and embarrassing failures since the first iPhone. Nothing was said about changing it, but the keyboard will get the ability to tap the first letter of a word, then swipe to the remaining letters without lifting your finger. That may help.

I’d really be happy if they upgraded the horrible autocorrect feature!  I send and receive bizarre substitutions.  I’ve deleted my “learned” dictionary a couple of times, but it’s still crummy.

Everything you can currently do with your iPad Air you will still be able to do in the future. When iOS 13 and iPadOS are released, you won't get them. We'll be stuck on iOS 12. For at least a year, maybe 2, just about all apps will continue to be fine. It won't be a problem until one of your apps gets updated to need more than iOS 12. Given Janome's dubious track record for updates, it probably won't be any of the "Acu" series. In fact it's likely that the battery in the iPad will give up the ghost before we get to that point. If you are thinking about maybe upgrading to a newer model, now would be the time. These iPads still have some value as trade-ins with Apple or selling to Gazelle.

It's not really about glamour, more about necessity. The WiFi on the 15000 works great for most folks, but not at all for some. If your machine is too far away from your computer (about 16 feet) then you can't send by USB cable. That leaves the USB stick. For all models prior to the 15000 (12000, 11000, 300E, et al) there is no WiFi and USB drives are the main method of transfer.

This is probably a good time to mention that you should NEVER use a USB drive as your means of design storage, at least not without substantial backup. USB drives use a chemical process to record data, and there is a limit to how many times they can be written to. It's a very high number, but they do eventually wear out. When they do, data may disappear.

Dropbox has been around long enough that it's probably a safe storage option, especially if paid. However they recently reduced the number of devices that can use a single free account. Like all "cloud" services, they are great until the provider either disappears or decides to cut the service. Several online photo storage companies have shut down in the past, often causing customers to lose photos. Google has been notorious for offering up free services, then killing them if they don't add to their insanely high bottom line. Even storing data in your own home is not guaranteed. Leaving out theft, fire, flood, etc. there is always the possibility that one day there will be no way to read the media that your data is stored on. You can still get USB floppy drives, but what about the old 5 1/4" or 8 1/2" floppies? CDs are subject to "rot" from fungus spores embedded in the dye. Nothing is forever, other than perhaps the IRS.

HI Jim, thank you for all your insight.  I have an iPad Air. Not a 2 or 3 or....  What does that mean for me in the future?  Will I still be able to access this forum?  What will be my limitations?  Kathy

Love this post Jim, from one nerd to another you nailed it! ONE CURIOSITY  - Maybe it’s just me - I never really did machine embroidery before I got my 15000 but I have not so much as looked at a USB stick except to run an update on my machine. I have all of my designs safely stored in my Dropbox (and backed up elsewhere) and I just send them to my machine as needed. Any design I want to use I just file it in my artistic folder and up to the cloud it goes till I need it. I use Dropbox for many things so I have a paid account with ample space but even the free option seems pretty adequate to use this transfer method all the time. What’s the glamour with using USB sticks to transfer files?

Re: Nerd Alert

Jim Stutsman
 

No, no, you're fine. The iPad Air 3 is actually the 4th version of the iPad Air. I have a first generation iPad Air, which will not use the new OS. However iPad Air 2 & 3 will, so there is no need to return it. It can also use the Apple Pencil, which you may want to add when the new OS is out. Broadly speaking, any iPad that can use either Apple Pencil will be able to use iPad OS.

Re: Nerd Alert

WOW, Jim, that is really exciting about the iPadOS.  It is something really neat to look forward to.  And to think that using the iExpand flash drive will be easier is just great.  

Thank you for that update with such exciting news.  Happy Happy...

Most likely few, if any, of you knew that yesterday was the first day of the Apple World Wide Developer Conference in San Jose. It's my Super Bowl, so naturally I was glued to the TV for the full 2 hour keynote. I am posting here only to report items that may be of interest to readers. There's actually only one - iPadOS.

Up to now iPhones and iPads have shared the same operating system, iOS. This fall they will split - iPhones will continue to use iOS, but newer iPads will use iPadOS. It has a large number of features that will make it a lot more like a laptop. Things like apps running side-by-side, easier copy/paste, and more. The big one is file management. It will allow you to plug in a USB drive directly to the iPad. Of course we can do that now with the specially designed USB devices that have the Apple Lightning plug on one end and standard USB A on the other. You'll still need those, but you will no longer need to use the cumbersome and clumsy apps that come with those types of USB sticks. Janome will hopefully extend AcuEdit and AcuDesign to use that capability, but even if they don't you may be able to use the built-in Files app to copy designs to/from USB drives.

As usual, some iPhones and iPads will be left behind when the updates come out this fall. iPhone 5, 5S, and 6 will not use iOS 13. iPad Air will not use iPadOS (So long old friend!), nor will iPad Minis up through Mini 3. There will probably be sales on these models, so be careful you don't buy into an obsolete product! With iPads, you are safe if it can use either the old Apple Pencil or the new one.

That's it - you can now return to your latest sewing project!
