Save Brother PR-1000 Jumbo Frame Design

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

2 - Open the design, which you want to save for Brother PR-1000 Jumbo Frame. To open a design, click "File" menu and choose "Open" command. Please note, that you probably will have to split this design into two parts.

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

1. Select the "Options > Hoop Size" menu

Select the "Options > Hoop Size" menu

4 - Choose "Brother PR-1000 Jumbo Frame - Horizontal" or "Vertical" option (Picture No. 2). Typical orientation is horizontal, with two overlapping sections. The vertical position works the same way as the horizontal 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.

2. Choose the right hoop

Choose the right hoop

5 - You can see now, that the design exceeds the size of one of the two overlapping sections (red, green). Notice the red rectangle drawn around design icon at the right side of the screen - it indicates that object is out of section. Therefore the design must be split into two parts (Picture No. 3). Use "Freehand Select Mode" button to select the stitches you want to cut out (separate). More information regarding splitting is available in Interactive Freehand Splitting tutorial.

Note: It is possible to skip following steps, and continue in step 8. Embird can automatically split the design in such a way that each object fits some section. However, sometimes it is better to split the design manually to obtain optimal result.

6 - Once you have selected the area you want to separate, it will be displayed in red color. Click "Split" button (or select the "Edit > Split" menu) to split the design, this will separate the red selection (Picture No. 4).

7 - You can see design parts (1 and 2) in the "Object Order Bar" at the right side of the screen (Picture No. 5). Each part now lies completely either in the top (red) or in the bottom (green) section of the hoop, therefore there is not a red rectangle around any object.

5. Design parts fit hoop sections

8 - Use "File > Save As" command to save the whole design to a file on your disk. In the "Choose Format" dialog box choose the Babylock, Bernina, Brother .PES format. In the second dialog box that appears on the screen you can choose the file name of the design being saved. Embird will save the both parts (i.e. both hoop sections) into a single .PES file.
