AlphaTricks turns ordinary alphabet designs with one file per character into keyboard lettering fonts you can type in with the Embrilliance platform and allows you to amend and rename even purchased BX formatted fonts you’ve installed.
Immediate Download. No waiting for delivery!
Mac and Windows Versions Included
AlphaTricks 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.
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.
What is AlphaTricks?
How do we map individual letter stitch files into keyboard fonts with AlphaTricks?
If you are familiar with the lettering tool in Essentials, you’d love to have all those things it can do with fonts working with your alphabet designs. With AlphaTricks, you can!
Note that the letters are automatically kerned for you. (Kerning is the spacing between each letter.)

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.
Specs / Installation
Embrilliance works with any embroidery machine!
All Embrilliance Platform programs work with any embroidery machine capable of loading embroidery files, as the platform can read and write at least one format that every embroidery machine understands. This includes all machines from Brother/Baby Lock, Janome, Viking, Pfaff, Bernina, and any commercial embroidery machine that reads the standard .DST format.
All Embrilliance Platform Programs can export the following file types:
.CSD, .DST, .DSZ, .EXP, .EXP+, .HUS, .JEF, .PCS, .PCM, .PES, .SEW, .SHV, .TAP, .VIP, .VP3, .XXX
You can even set stitch parameters for your favorite file type, including trim and automatic centering options for the universal DST file type used by both commercial and home embroidery machines.
Windows XP SP2 and later, OSX 10.58 and later. The Embrilliance platform is compatible with both and allows you to install on all the computers you own, including a mix of both Mac and Windows systems.
