3 - Choose "Pfaff Multi-Hoop - Horizontal" or "Pfaff Multi-Hoop - Vertical" option (Picture No. 2). Typical position is horizontal, with three overlapping sections. The vertical position works the same way as the horizontal does, but the parts are automatically rotated by -90 degrees when loading/saving from/to hard disk.

5 - Embird will ask you about the position in Pfaff Multi-Hoop for every file being merged into Editor. If you are opening files which were prepared in Embird, you can deduce the position from the file name displayed in the blue bar at the top of the window. In this example, it is Embird_1.pcs file and it should be placed into position 1 in Pfaff Multi-Hoop (Picture No. 4).

6 - Repeat the steps 4 and 5 for every part. You can select multiple files in "Merge Files" dialog box.
