3 - Choose "Viking Plus - Vertical" or "Viking Plus - Horizontal" option (Picture No. 2). Typical position is vertical, with three overlapping sections. The horizontal position works the same way as the vertical does, just the parts are automatically rotated by -90 degrees when loading/saving from/to the hard disk. Confirm the hoop selection by clicking "OK" button.

5 - Embird will ask you about the position in Viking Plus 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 rosac_1.hus file and it should be placed into position 1 (top) in Viking Plus Hoop (Picture No. 4).

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

7 - After opening all of the parts there will be a complete design in Work Area. In this example in consists of three roses designs (Picture No. 5). Sometimes it might be necessary to change the order of objects - this relates to the case of overlapping objects. The last object shown at Object Order Bar at the right side of the screen will be sewn you as the last one (and it will cover other objects lying below in case they overlap). If necessary, drag and drop the objects at Objects Order Bar, so that their order is correct.
