3 - Choose "Pfaff 2140 Grand Hoop - Horizontal" or "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.
2. Choose the right hoop
4 - Click "File" menu and choose the "Merge" command. The "Merge Files" dialog box will appear on the screen (Picture No. 3). Select the file you want to open. You can select multiple files at once (e.g. by depressing SHIFT key when you are clicking on a filename).
3. Merge files
5 - Embird will ask you about the position in the hoop 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 bar at the top of the window. In this example, it is "webb.vip" file and it should be placed into position 2 (section B, left, as specified by the last character of the filename) of the hoop (Picture No. 4).
6 - Repeat the steps 4 and 5 for every part. You can select multiple files in "Merge Files" dialog box.
4. Choose hoop section
7 - Sometimes it might be necessary to change the order of objects. Drag and drop objects at Objects Order Bar, so that their order is correct (Picture No. 5).
