TruEmbroidery™ 3 Software Newsletter November 2016
Welcome to the TruEmbroidery™ newsletter. This month we will look at the Break Up Stitches icon in TruE™ 3 Modify, and how to work with Flip, Skew and Reverse Order of Stitches to make an unusual repeat design from a stock embroidery.
Today, we'll look at the Break Up Stitches icon . This icon is found in the Control Panel > Modify page in TruE™ 3 Modify from the TruE™ 3 Elite package. Some embroidery projects have long stitches that can easily snag when heavily used.
Many embroidery designs have long, floating stitches, such as the satin petals shown in the daisy design on the left. Long stitches can snag easily when stitched on projects that will receive lots of use.
A simple way to break the stitches into uniform lengths, shown in the larger daisy in the adjusted design on the right, is to select Break Up Stitches . Type the desired stitch length in the Length settings box.
When you click OK, all visible stitches will be broken into the new stitch length setting.
In TruE™ 3 Modify software, you can use the Draw Strip tools, like Draw Next Color Block and the Control Strip slider to quickly hide stitches you don't want to change, or isolate areas of stitches to modify in different ways.
This example uses the following design from TruEmbroidery™ 3: Home/Premier+/Samples/BonusDesigns/Flowers and Leaves/Yellow Daisies.vp3.
