The main function of AlphaTricks is to allow you to create a keyboard font from an alphabet design collection so that you can quickly and easily create design layouts using these designs.

As an add on to Essentials, you get this added functionality to all the powerful customizing tools of the Essentials program. But AlphaTricks is also available as a stand alone program. Once you have imported the fonts here is just one example of what you can do in the program.

The font was purchased from 8 Claws and a Paw - wondering how we added this alphabet collection to the pulldown list? Check out our other video!

The applique design is from http://www.ADesignbyLyn.com and is part of the collection that is shown in the video.

Now remember - this video was done in AlphaTricks as a stand alone program - so everything shown can be done with AlphaTricks - with or without Essentials!

Your new Video is terrific Lisa!

I am sure this will help everyone using Alpha Tricks to understand that the program is much more than just a mapping program for digitized Alphabets and making text from the mapped letters.

Since I wasn't familar with Essentials I had no idea that Alpha Tricks would do so much until I watched a few of your Essentials Videos and experimented on my own in Alpha Tricks.

This video really shows how to import and merge designs with the lettering.

Thank You Again for all your work on making these videos and helping users of the Embrilliance Programs!
