5 - You can see now, that the design exceeds the size of one of the three overlapping hoops (red, green, blue), which create the Brother Jumbo hoop. 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. 3). 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.

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.
