  • NEW! WRITING: The new internal software for lettering is available in the T8 editor.
    For using the new WRITING function start the editor and then select no pattern for editing and press ESC. The menu for creating guidelines appears. Press ESC again to open the menu of WRITING for creating lettering.

    There are seven font families in different sizes and thus a total of 30 fonts as well as different options for arranging a lettering available. A detailed description follows separately.

  • Via the software settings it is possible to choose whether the function key "Monogram ABC" starts the new internal WRITING software or, as before, the automatic mode monogram machine.

  • Another option for the automatic generation of pattern repetitions is available. It allows to enter the distances of the patterns relative to each other at the pattern starting point. This option is useful when embroidering blanks with a first pattern repeat and then embroidering the blanks with a second pattern repeat to actually embroider the pattern you want.

  • Security queries when changing the machine pattern can now be switched off at the software settings.

  • The function for loading a pattern via your network can now also be activated via an applied barcode reader if the basic screen of the machine software is displayed. A detailed description follows separately.

  • Further special characters for assigning a network password are unlocked.
