On some Win 10 4K systems we found that Windows would not accurately report the DPI, so we found another way for that, which seems to be working reasonably.
MacOs Sierra has been rather a bit buggy, and so has Apple XCode system to build software. We’ve had some difficulty, even taking things directly to Apple, only to hear things like this: Continue Reading…
The Essentials color sort utility has been updated in 1.155 with a new patent-pending process. It now can open a new view with the sorted file, and we’ve created another World’s first by making the color sort intelligently aware of stacked applique. We’ve got a new video up showing the basics.
It’s time for an Embrilliance Platform update, and we’re rolling version 1.154:
We have re-launched our partnership with AccuQuilt Go! That company makes many applique dies which work great with machine embroidery. The flexibility of our interactive designs, installed by our BX system allows for ease of use with those like never before. The launch will consist of two products: The Essentials ‘Go!’ Edition, which includes a normal copy of Essentials along with the GO! dies installers, projects and videos on the disc. Secondly, for owners of Embrilliance products now, the GO! applique die collection will be separately available. The Essentials ‘GO!’ Edition is available now from AccuQuilt.com or AccuQuilt retailers everywhere. It will be a short while getting the second version for Embrilliance owners up and out, and as soon as it’s available we’ll make that known as widely as possible.

Windows 10 runs on many of the new computers with high-DPI screens and this results in tiny text, so many are using the Scaling feature of the Display properties. Scaling programs may make text bigger, but everything is a little fuzzy in the process. We have added icon sets and DPI-awareness to the Windows version so that if you run your display scaled at 150% for example, you get a nice clean, clear program view. Now if only we can get things like web browsers to do it as well!
One of our engineers, Tim, has encountered this state on a few of your computers. These are ones that have been upgraded from Windows 10.

The Embrilliance Platform has a minor update which is not needed for most users.
StitchArtist L2 users will definitely want this update. It includes the ability to load vector files of types: .SVG, .FCM and .studio. Support for these formats may have some reasonable limits to what objects are being imported, but these ‘Vector’ reads are sufficient to bring in most files. Continue Reading…
