3 - Choose "Janome GigaHoop - Horizontal" or "Janome GigaHoop -Vertical" option (Picture No. 2). Typical position is horizontal, with two overlapping hoops. 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 - Embird will ask you about the position in Janome GigaHoop for every file being merged into Editor. If you are opening files which were prepared in Embird, you can deduce the position from the file name displayed in the blue bar at the top of the window. In this example, it is www_1.jef file and it should be placed into position 1 in Janome Giga Hoop (Picture No. 4).

6 - Repeat the steps 4 and 5 for every part. You can select multiple files in "Merge Files" dialog box.
