Print Template

The following tutorial explains how to print a template from Editor. In Embird 2006 and later, it is possible to change the position of design being printed - you can move the design across the paper to the right position if you want to save the paper space - e.g. if you want to print two or more designs using the same sheet of vellum.

Note: You can print the documentation for your designs also from Manager, using the commands contained in the "Right Panel -> Print" menu. There are several types of documentation available in this menu.

1 - Run Embird and click "Editor" menu to switch to Editor window.

2 - Select the "File -> Open" menu to open a file which you want to print out (Picture No. 1).

5 - The "Print Layout" dialog box will appear on the screen (Picture No. 4). The cyan rectangle represents the hoop being printed. In this example, the hoop size is 100 x 100 mm, as it can be seen on the caption displayed in the middle of the cyan rectangle. The captions in the corners display the current position of these corners over the printer paper.

7 - You can double-click the paper area to add a text. This will display a dialog box with the pre-defined text, which relates to the design being printed (Picture No.6). You can delete this text, or add some new lines. If you want to change the font of the text, click the "Font" button and choose the new one from the dialog box which appears on the screen. Click "OK" button to continue.
