Last Saturday, I provided step-by-step instructions on intertwining letters in Inspirations’ Perfect Embroidery Pro. I think I should have taught you how to overlap letters first, and then advance to intertwining letters. In other words, I put the cart before the horse. Intertwining letters are different than overlapped letters. Intertwining means a portion of one letter goes both over and under the other letter.
Overlapped letters are when one letter sits on top of another.
Creating overlapped letters is very simple. Type the letters individually. Change the color of one letter so you can see your work more clearly. This is a good habit for almost all digitizing tasks.
Position them as you’d like. Select the letters individually, right mouse click and select Break Up Text.
Select the letter on top, the C is this example, right click and select Ungroup.
Select the letter on top, right click and select Remove Overlaps.
The stitches behind the C are removed.
Double check by moving the C to see the open space underneath.
So now you know how to overlap and intertwine letters.
