Creation of object symmetrical about both horizontal and vertical axes is explained on the following example:. However, these options serve to snap whole objects not just edited nodes.

This column mode allows to digitize columns with different number of nodes on each side. Therefore, we will use several columns and connections. If there are two lines, tool measures also the angle between the two lines.

Select connection tool and create connection path to the new start point. The first command, Align Beginning to Previous Objectmoves the beginning of an edited object to the end of previous object. The next section contains tools for creation of new objects. It is possible to select them all and group them into a single item in the list, for easier manipulations like moving, scaling, etc.

Now create the last column. These commands help to locate first and last node on complex edges with large number of nodes. Finished character contains 3 columns and 2 connections. To add Opening to Fill or Sfumato, the Fill or Sfumato must be either selected or it must be the last object in the Object Inspector list. This is another method to change which stitch will be last. Now create second column object.

In this case all objects will be drawn manually node-by-node in a specific order. When disabled, user can edit only last 2 nodes on each edge.

Both approaches assume that user has graphic template image of logo with text to digitize. The principle of lettering digitizing is explained on a case of simple character “A”. In case of character with multiple holes like “B”for exampleuse this tool for each hole separately. These connections are marked by blue arrows. This will place the end point at the right side. Digitizing of satin stitch lettering requires use of two tools: This list helps to select and manage objects in the design.


Creation of object symmetrical about both horizontal and vertical axes is manial on the following example: Align Outline Beginning to beginning of Previous. Measurement Tool measures distances and angles in design. To hide connection under cover stitches of the next mznual, make connection of the “V” shape as illustrated below:. Select Column tool or Column with Pattern toolwhich is the same as previous, but uses texture on wide parts.

Create first object by placing the first node blue arrowsecond node and then both edges of the column object. Measured parameters are displayed on panel at right side of the screen. Program automatically fills object with column stitches and connections.

Each character contains one or more columns. Use Generate Stitches or Finish command from the pop-up menu to finish the object. Now select “Auto-Column” option in the parameters window and generate the stitches. Connections are often included between respective characters too, for the same reason.

Swap Edges is the next command; it is intended for columns and other objects mebird have two sides. Duplicate and Mirror Horizontally and Duplicate and Mirror Vertically work in a similar way, but the axis of the symmetry is vertical and horizontal straight line passing through the first node. Although ‘Arrange Outline Parts’ function allows some deviation in parts kanual, the use of this function may help to reduce ‘Parts are not close enough’ problems.


Use zoom tool to zoom in left mouse button click or zoom out right mouse button click. Make sure that column mode “A” is selected in combo box in the top-right corner of the Studio window. The tools in the top section of the panel serve to manipulate the finished objects and to control the work area zoom and pan.

Main Menu – Edit

Green arrows mark the center nodes of the curves. After generation of stitches the column object will look like this:. Use embirrd function smbird place beginning of the new part exactly on beginning of previous part. Approach 2 – faster, but with less control In this case we will use automatic generation of stitches order auto-columnwhich creates stitches in required order automatically. These commands, however, are supposed to be used with short-cut keys, not via this menu.

The last one is a Measurement Tool. When doing a complex outline, some outline parts start not on end of previous part, but on its beginning, instead.

The next command, Align End to Next Object embbird, causes the end of the object being edited to the beginning of the object to be created next.

Manual Digitizing of Lettering

However, it is necessary to insert connection from the previous column object. It allows to create one or two measuring lines.

Then release the mouse button and selected area will be enlarged so that it fits on the screen. In this case we will use automatic generation of stitches order auto-columnwhich creates stitches in required order automatically.

Use Duplicate and Mirror Vertically command.
