Save Brother Jumbo Hoop Design

Save Viking Plus Hoop Design

1 - Run Embird and click "Editor" menu to switch to Editor window.

2 - Open the design, which you want to save for Jumbo Hoop or for Viking Plus Hoop. To open a design, click "File" menu and choose "Open" command. Please note, that you probably will have to split this design into two or three parts.

3 - Click the "Hoop Size" button, or select the "Options > Hoop Size" menu (Picture No. 1).

5 - You can see now, that the design exceeds the size of one of the three overlapping hoops (red, green, blue). Notice the red rectangle drawn around design icon at the right side of the screen - it indicates that object is out of section. Therefore the design must be split at least into two parts. Optimal solution is to split the design somewhere between the red and blue hoops in their common area (Picture No. 4). Use the "Freehand Select Mode" to select the stitches you want to cut out (separate). More information regarding splitting is available in Interactive Freehand Splitting tutorial.

Note: It is possible to skip following steps, and continue in step 8. Embird can automatically split the design in such a way that each object fits some section. However, sometimes it is better to split the design manually to obtain optimal result.

7 - You can see the parts of split design (part1 and part2) in the "Object Order Bar" at the right side of the screen (Picture No. 6). Each part now lies completely in one of the three overlapping sections of the hoop, therefore there is not a red rectangle around any object.

8 - Use "File > Save As" command to save the whole design to a file on your disk. In the "Choose Format" dialog box choose the "Babylock, Bernina, Brother .PES" format in case of Brother Jump hoop, or the "Viking Husqvarna .HUS" format in case of Viking Plus hoop. In the second dialog box that appears on the screen you can choose the file name of the design being saved.

Note: In case of Brother Jumbo hoop, all the design parts will be automatically combined and saved into a single .PES file on the hard disk. If you want to save each part into a separate file, choose the "Babylock, Bernina, Brother .PEC" format" in the "Choose Format" dialog box in step 8.
