Update 1.139 Embrilliance Platform

Hi, All,

Just a note to let you know that we’ve rolled 1.139 out to everyone.

This is mostly a maintenance release for StitchArtist. There were some UI bugs on Mac for StitchArtist (Apple induced some of them). This is the first pushed roll-out of some features including the Save All Cutfiles which now works on StitchArtist objects of any type.

It also adds multi-position hoop editing in the Hoop Preferences to the Enthusiast product.

And more importantly, there are some file-format updates for everyone.

Remember, not every update is needed for people with every product. Your program tells our server which titles you’ve got, and the server lets you know if we recommend an update. This is why some of you will run the ‘Check for updates’ and get told ‘Your program is up to date’ even if there is an mid-level update. It may not have anything to do with a product you own. However, it is fine at any point to grab the current release version. It just may not change anything that you would notice.

Happy Holidays!

Platform 1.137 update

Hi everyone,

1.137 was posted today. It includes mostly bug fixes – fairly minor but if you are having any troubles at all, please update.

We had an issue occur which affected the placement of objects in Color Sort. That has been corrected, and the Save All for cut-files sometimes would miss pieces, resulting in a message that a cut-file could not be created.

Also there were some minor tweaks in the Mac StitchArtist interface. Apple had changed some things on us in an update that came through right as we were releasing the last version, and that broke some OSX 10.5 items. We have revisited those and made adjustments. Sorry about that!

We know there are still improvements to be made, and we’re working constantly on that. Meanwhile, we know you’re having fun!

1.134 – minor update

We had 1 or 2 fairly trivial items that we had broken in a previous update, and we’ve improved a couple things behind the scenes, so we’re putting 1.134 of the Embrilliance Platform up today. We’re trying to keep zero customer-reported glitches.

1.133 – still more!

When we first released the ability to remove stitches hidden under an applique a few versions ago, it sparked some interest and a bunch of conversation. We then released in 1.132 the ability to save a cut file, and preview simulated fabric in applique designs, and that has been like a lightning strike. What if we were to tell you this was all building to something? Hmmm… Continue Reading…

Version 1.132 – News and a free update!

It has been awhile since you’ve heard from us because we’ve been working on some cool new things.

Do you like to view embroidery designs in 3D mode? Of course you do – the more realistic, the better.  But what about appliqué designs?  Wouldn’t it be nice to see them with a fabric simulation? Hmmm…

Version 1.130

Another update? Yes, version 1.130 has been posted. Some of our Mac folk couldn’t get their Mac to right-click, thanks to the legacy of Steve Jobs’ broken driving finger (why else would his mouse only have one button?). But no matter, because we were going to add a feature anyway. Now when changing the color, you also have an applique tab!
