    If you get Wilcom Truesizer it will allow you to change the format to anything you need. It's free.

    I have downloaded Wilcom and have rotated the pattern....very easy to do. It saved as an emb file, how do I save it back as a PES file?

    I'm glad you solved the problem! I don't understand why embroiderydesigns didn't offer the design rotated already because that's how you purchase this size designs. They should be rotated because otherwise it doesn't fit and you can't load it into your machine.

    Red face you need to change your fabric.

    When I down loaded it into my computer it saved the same direction you see it. My machine field is 7 inches tall by 5 inches wide. The pattern is 6.8 inches tall by 4.11 inches wide. My machine is a Brother PE770, I called them today and they said it can't be rotated until it is on the embroidery machine, which cannot be done because it exceeds the size. They said with PED I can re -size/rotate it first. Then it should be able to be loaded onto the machine. I would really like to keep the original size of the pattern if possible, so that would entail rotating the pattern, if possible.

    I probably made that as clear as mud....sorry.
    I do not think you can change the direction of the pattern due to the size of pattern but you must change your fabric or what ever you are sew on so the pattern will fit in that space. I have a Brother 1500D and when I asked at the store that is what I was told to do. I would suggest you try it out onto other fabric first to see which works the best.

    I was going to say Wilcom too , it will also change the format if you find a design you want and it's not in your format. FREE (except Art)

    I may not understand all the ins and outs of this problem. I resize my designs all the time on my computer before I send it to the machine. When you download the design and then open it on your computer isn't it in a hoop format. Click on the little corners while you hold down ctrl and resize!

    I'd say also to contact the design company. I have a Viking and load designs all the time and have to rotate them for them to fit a hoop. It does sound like a problem with the file format since it won't recognize the file; it should see it even if it doesn't load it. Something with the file isn't right. Let us know what happens with the design co. Here is a link for free full software. If you decide you want a copy of it on cd there is a acharge of 15 but that also comes with tutorials on it so I've heard it's worth the money. There are lots of freebees out there that can help you but this one is a full program. http://www.freesierrasoftware.com/

    She does say on the first page that it is a PED file so that may be the problem right there.
