Double-click to Fill Empty Area in Editor

Embird Embroidery Software Tutorial

Embird Editor 2020 and above allows to quickly fill an empty area in existing design or around this design. No other Embird plug-in registration is required for this operation.

Note: This feature does not replace Embird Studio, which offers true digitizing possibilities.
