Resizing with Density Adjustment

Embird Embroidery Software Tutorial

1 - Run Embird and click "Editor" menu to switch to Editor window.

2 - Open the design using "File > Open" menu.

3 - Click the "Set Size" button, or select the "Edit > Set Size" menu (Picture No. 1).

1. Select "Edit > Set Size" menu

4 - Click "Stitch Density" button in the "Set Size" dialog box which appears on the screen. This will display another dialog box, allowing to change the resizing settings (Picture No. 2).

2. Click "Stitch Density" button

5 - Choose the resizing mode: with or without density adjustment. If you decide to resize with density adjustment, you can specify whether you want to keep the original fill pattern for filled areas, or whether these areas will be re-filled with a new pattern. You can specify also the density of column stitches and density of fill stitches (Picture No. 3). The fill stitches pattern is used for filled areas (this setting is available only in case you switch off the "Keep original fill pattern" option). The default setting for pattern is "Fill 1", the examples of all patterns can be seen after clicking "Example" button. If you choose the "None" pattern, the fill areas will become columns.

Note: The bigger number you type into the density boxes, the lower density you obtain. In fact, this number is distance between stitches in tenths of millimeters (value 4 means 0.4 mm).

3. Resizing settings

6 - Specify the new size of the design, or let it be the same if all you want to change is the stitch density (Picture No. 4).

4. Specify new design size

7 - Finally, click "OK" button to finish the resizing (Picture No. 5). Compare stitch count of resized design with original design stitch count (Picture No. 1)
