4 - Sew Simulator window will appear on the screen (Picture No. 2). Simulation of sewing can be started by pressing "Play" button (1). When the simulation starts, the "Play" button will be replaced by "Pause" button. The current stitch will be drawn in red color. Simulation can be paused by pressing "Pause" button (1), resumed by pressing "Play" button again (1), rewound by pressing "Rewind" button (2) and forwarded by "Forward" button (3). Simulation can be finished by clicking "Finish" button (4). Click "Close" button (5) to return to "Editor".
Switches (6), (7), (8) and (9) allow to pause the simulation process on occurrence of the next running stitch, jump stitch, stop (color change) or trim, respectively.
If you pause the simulation, you can use the "Locate" button (11) to locate the current stitch in complex design.
If you decide to split the design on current stitch, use "Split" button (12).
In case the design does not fit the hoop, use "Hoop Size" button (10) to change the hoop size.
Speed of the simulation can be controlled by "Stitches per second" box (13).
Stitch process bar (14) shows the colors of design and simulation progress. The blue lines above the bar represent jump stitches, the magenta lines below the bar represent trims. You can click anywhere across the bar to move the pointer (current stitch) to this place.
