Happy Fourth of July!
Hope you’re enjoying your holiday weekend. When you tear yourself away from the festivities, you’ll find July’s free designs on the My Today page of Perfect Embroidery Pro, ready for download.
Once you open Perfect Embroidery Pro, you’ll be prompted to accept the latest version, 8.47. Just follow the prompts to receive helpful new updates. Here’s what you’ll find:
Enhanced icons – those that are active are brighter while the dormant icons are softer. The distinction between the two is now easily identified.
You’ll find a new option for forcing a machine to stop between color changes in applique designs. Since some machines skip a color change when identical colors are next to each other in the stitch order, adding a check mark in the Color Change box will ensure the machine stops at the correct time. If you’ve been struggling with this at your machine, you’ll find the stop specifically helpful between the placement guide and tack down of an applique design.
After numerous requests, we’ve added the Break Up Path feature for faster editing of buttonholes. Select the buttonhole design, right mouse click and select Break Up Path from the drop down menu.
The elements will now be grouped in two groups – the decoration and the actual buttonhole.
We all have a favorite thread chart that we use to select our threads. Of course, you’ve been able to select a default palette and custom any chart. Now when you load a C2S design, Perfect Embroidery Pro will convert the colors to your thread chart if you’ve selected that option in Tools, General Options, Environment. Just put a check in the box to activate the option.
If you have Microsoft Surface tablet, you’ll enjoy the new, larger My Today screen.
PES format users rejoice! The warning message regarding designs that are larger than 200mm x 300mm is now a thing of the past.
Open Perfect Embroidery Pro today, download the update and enjoy all the improvements!
