5 - Embird will ask you about the position in the 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 bar at the top of the window. In this example, it is "web_3.pcs" file and it should be placed into position 3 of the hoop (Picture No. 4).

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