AlphaTricks Fonts by Designer

AlphaTricks Font Importer turns ordinary alphabet designs into useful keyboard lettering fonts. Save all the hassle of merging individual letters, and the inconvenience of re-ordering them to make a word sew out. AlphaTricks will import all the designs in an alphabet and help you map each design to a key on your keyboard. Then you can use the designs almost as if they were a built-in font. Current users of Embrilliance Platform programs also enjoy AlphaTricks‘ ability to add to, remap, and rename existing BX fonts installed in their system, including those purchased online.

Import individual letter files to create typable, keyboard-ready fonts!

Alphatricks is best used in addition to Essentials. It can also be used by itself with limitations. Used by itself, it cannot re-size merged designs. That and other Essentials features will not be available, such as the Utility menu.

Note: AlphaTricks does not come with fonts – AlphaTricks is a tool to map alphabet embroidery designs you’ve purchased elsewhere.

AlphaTricks Cache is now able to remember your loaded fonts, so that subsequent program launches are super quick – even less than half the time, if you have large font collections.

AlphaTricks is part of the Embrilliance Platform, so it can print templates of your designs, including the optional Brother / Baby Lock target sticker (‘snowman’).

AlphaTricks is a letter-lovers dream addition to Essentials or you can run it by itself with some limitations. That said, if you run AlphaTricks, we just know you’ll want Essentials, too. That’s which is why we describe it as a feature-packed addition for Essentials.
