Error Messages from Easy
Janome Customizer is a program that many embroiderers use to open and
view designs, as well as write designs to an ATA card for Janome
machines. Easy Edit
is one component of that program.
Most versions of Easy Edit are limited to 64,000 stitches, as some
Janome machines are limited to that number of stitches. If you try to
open a design with Easy Edit, and that design has more than 64,000
stitches, you'll get this error message:
Check the number of stitches that your
machine can accept. That information may be in your user manual, but

Direct the program to the design, and click
on the file name/number. Then click "open."
You'll get a warning message about a .bmp
file not being found, but that's okay -- just ignore that warning. You
should now see the design open on the Easy Import canvas.
Click "ATA Card" and "Write a Design."
You'll get a message advising that the number of stitches in the design exceeds
the machine's limit. The Customizer program will automatically split the
design into pieces for you. Click "ok."
The program will split the file into two
pieces -- a and b. Stitch part a first, then part b, for a complete
