The following tutorial explains how to use the "Save Workspace" and "Open Workspace" commands of Editor. These commands allow to store the workspace so that it can be restored exactly as displayed, with objects separated, stitches selected, etc. Use these commands if you want to stop your work and continue on another day; and have the possibility to quickly restore the current state of workspace.
1 - Run Embird and click "Editor" menu to switch to Editor window.
2 - Open the designs and make the editing - in this example there are two objects in the work area, and some stitches of the object no. 2 are selected (Picture No. 1).
1. Open the design and edit it
3 - Click the "File > Save Workspace As" menu to save the current state of the workspace to a file on your hard disk (Picture No. 2).
2. Select "File > Save Workspace As" menu
4 - The "Save Workspace" dialog box will appear on the screen (Picture No.3). Specify the name of the file for your project - e.g. "MyProject.eef". The ".eef" extension is mandatory; it means "Embird Editor File". Click "Save" button to save the project.
5 - Once the saving is finished, you can close Editor and exit Embird.
3. Save workspace to .EEF file
6 - On another day, if you decide to re-open this project, run Embird, switch to "Editor" window and click the "File > Open Workspace" menu (Picture No. 4).
4. Select "File > Open Workspace" menu
7 - The "Open Workspace" dialog box will appear on the screen (Picture No. 5). Choose the "MyProject.eef" file and click "Open" button to continue.
5. Choose .EEF file and open it
8 - Embird will open this workspace project file and it will restore the state of work area - there are two objects, and some of the stitches in object no. 2 are selected (Picture No. 6).
6. Continue editing
9 - Now you can continue with editing, e.g. you can click "Edit > Split" menu to separate the selected stitches in object no. 2.
