4 - Choose "Brother PR-1000 Jumbo Frame - Horizontal" or "Brother PR-1000 Jumbo Frame - Vertical" option (Picture No. 2). Typical orientation is horizontal, with two overlapping sections. The vertical position works the same way as the horizontal does, just the parts are automatically rotated by -90 degrees when loading/saving from/to the hard disk. Confirm the hoop selection by clicking "OK" button.

5 - You can see now, that the design exceeds the size of one of the two overlapping sections (red, green), which create the Brother PR-1000 Jumbo Frame. Therefore the design must be split into two parts (Picture No. 3). Use "Freehand Select Mode" button to select the stitches you want to cut out (separate). More information regarding splitting is available in Interactive Freehand Splitting tutorial.
