Same as Peckish….I figured it out on my own and used manual and the website to answer questions.

I also have figured things out as I run into problems. I use EQ8 a few times a month. It has saved me money as I have created many quilts in EQ and then never make them thus saving me, my time, fabric, batting, and thread! Some of my designs do make it as quilts and it helps to estimate yardage and determine color choices. Yes, there are others ways to do this but I enjoy the features in this product.

I am thrilled to finally be able to create some quilts in EQ7. What really jump-started me (after 5 years of getting mostly nowhere) was a free video tutorial series by Kari Schell called "Catch the Waves":

She also has a blog with short video tutorials in her archives: https://www.onpointquilter.com/ . I found her Irish Chain quilt helpful: https://www.onpointquilter.com/blog/double-irish-chain
Thank you for posting these video links. I have EQ8 and EQ-Stitch. I upgraded from EQ7 recently. I had purchased the books on EQ7 about 2 years ago and I was still learning from these. Now they tell me at their website the EQ7 Books are now basically useless with the newer version EQ8 and I haven't completed the Books yet.... I'm so disappointed as you know, the books are NOT cheap. So thank you these will come in handy....

Is there any way to get EQ8 on a disk instead of having to buy it as a download?

No. Most computers donít even have disk drives anymore.

Why do you want a disk?

It looks like even if you "purchase" it and have it shipped all you get is the license number and directions

This is copied from the site ......

New Delivery: Download right away, or have it shipped! The shipped EQ8 retail box contains a software download license. There is NO media device (CD, DVD, USB) included. There is a License ID and License Password found in the package. This information will allow you to download the software from the EQ website. You will select either PC or Mac at the time of the download.

Actually once you purchase it and register it it is easy to install on a computer or even move it to another computer.
