Options Menu (Editor)

Use commands in the Options menu to specify embroidery field size, hoop color and unit measurements.

Options Menu Commands:

Hoop Size

Choose an embroidery field size by specifying the dimensions of the hoop size you will be using. Rectangular and round hoops are supported. See also File Formats, Available Hoops and Limits and Section Definition in Hoop-It-All™.

Hoop Color

Change the background color of hoop.

Selection Color

Change color used for drawing of selected stitches.

Change Hoop After Saving

If ON, the hoop is changed after saving the design to reflect the hoop size stored in file.

Join Same Consecutive Colors

If ON, the same consecutive colors in Object will be joined into one block, and the color stop code between them will be removed. See also Object Colors in Objects Order Bar.

Measure in Millimeters

If ON, distances are measured in millimeters.

Measure in Inches

If ON, distances are measured in inches.

Stitch Density

Adjust density during resizing by enabling or disabling this command. Specify the default values of density for column and fill stitches in this dialog box, too. Fancy fill patterns can be retained, or you can choose a new pattern for fill stitches areas.

Long Floating Stitches

Specify how the long floating (jump) stitches should be finished when saving file to the disk: with zero-length running stitch, or with non-zero-length running stitch.

Long Running Stitches

Specify how very long running stitches should be handled when saving the design to disk. They can be converted to jump stitches, or replaced by several running stitches.

Add Jump to First Stitch

If OFF, jump from hoop center to the first stitch of design will be not inserted when saving design. This option is intended for preparing designs for continuous hoops for industrial embroidery machines.

Add Jump to Last Stitch

If OFF, jump from last stitch of design to the hoop center will be not inserted when saving design. This option is intended for preparing designs for continuous hoops for industrial embroidery machines.

Animate Changes

If ON, the design changes (re-sizing, moving, skewing and rotating) are animated, and the result of operation is visible immediately.
