    Did your machine come with any software that you run on your PC? I have always printed my designs from my embroidery software. I purchase the designs on line (from Embroidery library or wherever), download them, then open them in my embroidery software and print. The print outs have the center cross lines marked. I have 4D software distributed by Viking, but there are less expensive programs that should let you do this.

    ETA: I just went to emblibrary. If you go to your Profile, then Order History and open up one of the designs you've purchased, a screen, Color Change Sheet, comes up with the colors needed and a picture of the design. What I don't know is if this design will print actual size. You can go and try it though!

    You should be able to print the design by using what ever software you use to open the design for viewing. Some machines will allow you to hook your USB to them and print from it or you can convert it to a jpeg or bmp and print it as a picture. Do you have any emb software at all?

    You need software to print up templates

    When I print out the color change sheets from embroidery library, they do not print the design at full scale. I don't know if there's a way you could do it without additional software or not.

    Did you not get even a basic software with your machine. Viking gives us an organizier that will pull up the design and print it in full scale. I know some of the other machines also come with at least a basic software

    Good luck. Once you've mastered it, you'll love it.
