Export Printable Documentation

Embird Embroidery Software Tutorial

This tutorial explains how to export printable documentation and how to use it. Printable documentation is an executable file which contains the design stitches and also routines for printing template. This might be very useful if you want to send the design to customer via Internet and allow to print this design on the customer computer. The customer does not need to have any embroidery software - he/she will just run the executable file and print the template.

Tip: Tip: It is recommended to compress the executable file to .ZIP archive to minimize its size. This will also change the extension of file from .exe to .zip. Some e-mail programs do not allow to send .exe files, so it solves this problem as well. See also tutorial Creating ZIP Archive.
