Betty, thank you so much for your help. My EQ7 was only downloaded and the exe file has disappeared from the old computer, so I have no idea how my clever son managed to transfer the program to the new computer, though I did have to insert my ID no. The PJ7 file was in documents, but when I just looked there was nothing in there. So managed to find it elsewhere and dragged it in. Joy! It works. I will have to ask to company for a new download so I still have it. I'm really hating this windows 10 as I find it does things I don't want done, and can't do others that I did in Win 7. Hopefully it will get me to fall into line soon. lol

I’m embarrassed to even be asking. I ha EQ when it first started and never used it. This thread looks like a great place to ask questions. My quilting life is pushing me to try this again.
First question; what operating system is used? What do I need on the computer to support EQ8?

One time I felt I was beginning to understand EQ. Then, I stepped away from it for a couple of months and yep, I'm back to square one. I think it will be a New Years Resolution. Ha ha It may be good for a long, cold winter.

You can get EQ8 for both Windows and Mac. It will not run on a Chromebook. Depending on what previous version you own, you may be able to get a reduced price on a new edition. System requirements are here: https://electricquilt.com/online-sho...20Requirements

I have nothing to add except, once you start using it, you’ll love it. Lots of lessons on website and blog. I use the “search” on website and they will usually have my answer. It’s great for creating border designs for panels. You can upload a picture of panel and resize it based on your border block sizes, which helps to know dimensions for panel cutting. I love the foundation paper piecing option, too, for blocks. Anywhoo…I’m an EQ8 cheerleader and know, based on your past creations, that you will really utilize this.

quick question--has anyone done the online EQ lessons being offered? There are 3 levels of lessons and I'm interested but really do not want to start at level 1 since I've used it for some time now plus I don't want to pay to do what I've already learned. Let me know if you can about the differences in the 3 classes--I emailed EQ but of course they want you to start with the first one.

Thanks

I didn't bother with the lessons, I couldn't keep my interest and focus up long enough to get through them. I played with the software, and when there was something I couldn't figure out on my own, I looked it up in the manual.
