Tips and Techniques
This month we will focus on how to utilize the features in the TruE™ 3 Thread Cache application to personalize our thread selection menus.
Thread Cache contains three specialized menus, each designed to customize and optimize the thread selection, and for keeping thread inventories of our own thread stocks.
The Thread Cache specialized menus are designed to customize and optimize the thread selection process when changing threads in any function within either TruEmbroidery™ 3 ELITE
or TruEmbroidery™ 3 ELEMENTS, and to keep inventories of thread stocks.
When you open TruE™ 3 Thread Cache via Launchpad™ or
from a shortcut you created on the Dock™, the menu automatically opens to My Thread Ranges .
Select any thread database from the list at the left, and click Add To My Thread Ranges to
make the thread database available in your 'quick list' in My Thread Ranges, when selecting new threads in your embroideries.
Select a thread range, and click Move Up or Move Down to adjust the
Thread Range's position in the My Thread Ranges List, or click Remove from My Thread Ranges when you no longer need a special thread in your customized list.
The second menu, My Thread Databases , gives you options
for customizing thread databases. Standard Thread Databases are in the left half of the menu, and your own personal My Thread Databases are on the right.
Click Add New Database below the My Thread Databases list, type in a new name, and click OK to create a special thread list.
Add threads to your database when it is selected in the My Thread Databases list. Select a thread from the Standard Thread Database on the left,
and click Add to My Threads to place it in the selected database. You can also type the thread number
to add specific threads in your thread stash, and then select and add the thread.
Other tools in the toolbar below the listed threads include Move Thread Up ,
Move Thread Down ,
Add New Thread (when you purchase a new thread not yet present in the Standard Thread Databases),
Delete Thread ,
and Copy Thread .
Don't forget to add the new database to My Thread Ranges menu ,
so the new database will appear in your My Thread Ranges 'short list' wherever you have the option to change thread colors in any TruEmbroidery™ 3 application.
If you no longer need a special Thread Database, simply select it in the My Thread Databases, and click Delete Database ,
then confirm by selecting Yes. Or, use Rename Database to give the selected database a new name.
The third menu is My Thread Stock . Add threads from any or all of your custom My Thread Databases, add the number
of spools in your stash, sort by Number, Name and more, and then
Print or Upload to the
Cloud to use on the TruE™ 3 Thread Cache iOS App for iPhone or iPad. You'll always know which threads you need when you get to your local sewing store!
