Main Menu - Design

The first command, Compile and Put into Embird Editor, compiles a design digitized in Studio and places it into Editor so the design can be saved in desired embroidery format.

The next 6 commands are New, Open, Open Recent, Save, Save As, Merge. In all cases, the format is EOF. EOF is native file format of the Embird Studio. It stores all design objects, lettering and background image in a single file.

Merge adds selected design to the one already opened in Studio.

Export command allows to convert vector design from Studio to other file formats. Current version supports Scalable Vector Graphics *.SVG format and Embird Text Baseline *.ETB format. Use export to SVG format if you need to transfer design from Studio to graphic programs like Corel Draw.

Save in Compact Format (for internet) stores design in a scalable outline file without image and stitches to achieve small file size. It is intended for internet delivery of embroidery files. Receiver of such design can open it with Embird 2003 or later and resize it without loss of quality. Compact file has an EOF extension just as normal design file, but it is much smaller in size. Digitizer should save her/his design also in normal EOF format (Save, Save As) for further editing, if any. Compact format does not include background image, guide lines and other data that are unnecessary for end user.

Save Selected As works like Save As, but only the selected objects are stored into the file.

The Import Vector File function opens the vector graphic file and converts it into the embroidery design. Read more about this function here.

Border opens sub-menu with commands for creation and editing of user defined Border Samples.

Parameters command opens the window with design and objects properties.

The last command is Exit, which follows the usual Windows convention prompting user to name the design and choose a location.

Load Color Palette and Save Color Palette allow to copy customized color palette from one design file to another. Colors are loaded to palette in the top-right corner of the Studio window. They serve to select color for vector objects in design.
