3 - Choose "Pfaff Grand Dream Hoop - Vertical" or "Pfaff Grand Dream Hoop - Horizontal" option (Picture No. 2). Typical position is vertical, with two overlapping sections. The horizontal position works the same way as the vertical does, just the parts are automatically rotated by -90 degrees when loading/saving from/to the hard disk.

5 - Embird will ask you about the position in Pfaff Grand Dream Hoop for every file being merged into Editor. If you are opening files which were prepared in Embird, you can deduce the position from the file name displayed in the blue bar at the top of the window. In this example, it is "part_a.vp3" file and it should be placed into position 1 (section A, as specified by the last character of the filename) of Pfaff Grand Dream Hoop (Picture No. 4).

6 - Repeat the steps 4 and 5 for every part. You can select multiple files in "Merge Files" dialog box.
