Hi, I'm fairly new to embroidery so all of my downloaded fonts are in BX format. I'm also very new to Embrilliance. Can you please tell me what Alpha Tricks will do that I can't already do in Embrilliance since I don't need to map any fonts? Thank you!

If all you ever purchase is Alphabets that come with the BX files then you probably don't need Alpha Tricks.

If you find you want to purchase any Alphabets from Digitizers that don't include the BX files for the Alphabets then Alpha Tricks is the program to use in order to map and save those Alphabets into Alpha Tricks so they can be used in Alpha Tricks and Essentials in the same manner that you would use the BX files of an Alphabet in Essentials by selecting it in the Font Drop down Menu.

Alpha Tricks allows you to rename or change the name or add to the name of the fonts and makes it easy to delete a font from the program if you don't use it often etc..

The choice is yours!
