    Embroidery question

    Does anyone out there have My Editor, the free embroidery editing program on their computer? I'm trying to resize a design. Was able to do that, but when I tried to stitch it out, it didn't stop for color changes. Just kept on stitching. I'm not understanding how to put in color change stops. Hope I'm making sense. It's probably something really simple, I just can't seem to figure it out!

    Thanks!

    I don't have that program. I hope someone can help you, if not you could watch as it stitches out and stop it yourself for color changes. Could be done.
    Peace

    Yes, I've had the free "My Editor" for several yrs and I love using it--for what I need it for. Have not learned to digitize with it, but understand you can. I've never had that problem of 'no stops' when I resize a design. If I have a design that is--for instance 5.5 x 7.2, and I want it to be reduced to 5x7. I resize by clicking off the 'aspect' button in the Scale window--then type in 12.70 width and 17.78 in height..click OKAY. Then I go up to STITCHES--ARRAY and click. This seems to take some of the density out when making the design smaller. If you want the aspect/ratio to remain same, then just leave the 'aspect' button checked & change either the height or width and it auto reduces both. I change colors a lot with the program--delete parts of a design, mostly editing preferences. If I can help-pm me.
