Opening Designs with Wilcom's TrueSizer
Wilcom's TrueSizer is a free software
program that you can use to open designs on your computer, print
templates, mirror, and rotate.
To open a design, follow these steps. Begin by opening the software.
Then, click "File," and "Open."
A pop-up box will appear. Use the navigation tools on that box to find
the design on your computer. For example, I store designs in a folder on
my desktop, and the folder name is Embroidery Library Designs.
I directed the "open" box to that folder, and you can see that below.
The "files of type" may default to "emb." Use the drop-down box to
change that selection to "all design files."
Left-click on the design in the "open" window to highlight it, then
click the "open" button.
Now the design is in the "work area." You
can rotate it, print a template, and mirror the design as well. It's a
very basic software program, but it is free.
The Wilcom software can open many different file types. But it can't
open a zipped file. If you try to open a zipped file, you'll get this:
Unzip designs before attempting to open
designs with the software, and everything should work fine.
